    Hi all,

    I just got myself a cheap vantage telecaster copy (vit 11/dbs, made in indonesia), and actually it sounds great.

    The only problem is that it happens that a screw in the saddle gets loose and starts vibrating... any ideas on how to solve this ?

    (the saddles I have look like this)

    Zorg

    ps: this is my first post... Hope I won't make a fool of myself...

    Loctite - I think blue or purple are low strength and will let you break the bond with a normal tool and hand strength. Other colors are very strong, practically permanent on small screws.

    Indeed, that makes sense, since I shouldn't have to change the action so often.
    Thanks !

    You can also just paint the top of the saddles where the adjuster screws go with some clear fingernail polish.

    Works perfect and if you have a girlfriend sister or wife you should be able to find some.

    Nice, even easier than glue. I'll see what the women around me have... Pink saddles are not really an option ;)
