    How do I stop those tiny screws coming out. Particularly on the B string? If I don’t adjust it, we enter into choked sitar territory. Can anyone suggest something?

    It’s a jaguar bridge

    Small amount of clear fingernail polish.

    On the screw? On top of the screw? (I am not confident in doing things like this, so please excuse my pushing for more info).

    Set the saddle to the the proper height then apply a small (very little) amount to the top of the screw and saddle. When it dries, it won't go anywhere. Just don't go crazy with it.

    This problem aside, how do you like the guitar?

    I'm selling my Gretsch Pro Jet because it doesn't feel quite right but i love the filtertrons, and I have an SH Tele which is great, but I figure the Cab is the best of both worlds. Also frees up a bit of wall space for another guitar. That's my way of thinking anyway.

    I set my saddle heights. then flip the guitar and dab nail polish on the threads under the saddles... that way you don't fill the screw heads with goop... and the screws can't back out (up) lowering the saddle.....

    a bit more fiddly, but neater and out of sight ..... especially if you run out of clear polish and use another shade...:D

    I love it. The pickups are great, the bigsby is terrific. I own two other guitars a gretsch 5420t and a telecaster deluxe Nashville. This one is like both of them combined.
