Greetings. I recently got a Squire VM Jag at a decent price off Reverb(dot)com (It's a keeper). 'Didn't really know about all the 'jangling' (i.e., rattling) issues that Jags can have. Nor about how the 'threaded saddles' can be problematic with string slippage. At any rate, I got a cheap Chinese-made replacement Mustang bridge off eBay ($17, correct string spacing, 9.5 radius, with a nice groove for each string); apparently, at one time only Warmoth had 'em. So. I've read & watched about all there is to see on Jag set-ups, which was one reason I got the Mustang bridge. Q: 'Seems like a lot of folks (maybe most) put some kind of tape around the bridge poles (that insert into the studs). This makes the bridge stationary, helps keep the guitar in tune, and stops 'rattling'. So my Q is: Are Jags actually DESIGNED to have a kind of floating bridge? (To me it would seem so, seeing as they're made like that). My current plans are to use aluminum tape to secure the bridge poles & give the saddles a dose of white lithium grease (since the strings will be 'moving over' the saddles). As something of an aside: the Chinese Mustang bridge's intonation screws were a tad short; fully extended, they barely make it half way into the bridge space. I'm going to install some longer screws from a Mexican Strat bridge I no longer use. They're slightly shorter than the stock screws currently still on the new Jag (these screws look as if they may hit the bridge, being pretty long). Q2: Do any of you just go with a stock VM Jag bridge? (without securing it stationary in the studs)? If so, do you have tuning issues? Thanks in advance!
