"Nail polish works well, it's cheap and you can get it in lots of pretty colors."

"Excellent, thank you! The purple LocTite isn't supposed to be permanent like the other colors, I think that it's pretty new. I do have teflon tape but I really like the nail polish idea."

"Teflon tape if you have it in your toolbox? Also a little dot of nail polish applied with a toothpick. I usually go the nail polish route since it doesn’t impede adjustment. Cheers"

Hard tail bridge saddle screws

Anybody else have problems with the saddle elevation screws falling out when your CBG isn't at fully tuned tension? I like to reduce tension on my strings when I'm not practicing and I've had the screws fall out. I've been lucky and been able to find them so far but it's annoying. I think LocTite purple might work but I would like to figure out some DIY solution that would keep the screws from being too loose but allow them to still be adjusted.WaltSee More

Walt hi, I try to give you a summary about what I recently tried to say: Darryl proposed to add Rogowski to the list of contributors, Wayfinder answered that he had no impact to the discussion; this is simply not true, as you can se from the first post of «How is this done?» where I stated the Alumitone be «technically a transformator». «transformator» was the keyword of the discussion from the first beginning, and this concept is Rogowski's. My intention is not about priority but about false claims. The reason I posted part of the interview of the Lace brothers is another: Wayfinder claimed there's no proof Rogowski had the idea about low impedance pickups already in the seventies but possibly based his post from 11/18/2007 on Lace's Alumitones: who is this guy to challenge the intellectual integrity of Rogowski without any reasons? Have a good time!
