Put together a kit guitar - a twelve-string discussed here: https://www.tdpri.com/threads/first-time-build-t-style-12-string.979507/ After getting advice that perhaps some of the problems I was facing might be addressed by looking at the neck (possibly needing a shim in the neck pocket and adjusting the nut to help with too-high action) I decided to take it into a shop in town as I didn't think I had adequate tools for the job. Got the guitar back last night and the issues with the action seem to have been resolved, but I'm still unhappy with the bridge. The octave strings still do not want to sit securely in the notches in the saddle. It could be that I have no idea how it should be. But I can't get over the idea this bridge is cheap and poorly designed. The path for the main strings is pretty much in a straight line - through the body, over the saddle, then up the neck to the nut. Using that as a model, the path for the octave strings has a couple of extra factors. The strings are threaded through the end of the bridge and the holes are slightly out of line from there to the saddle. This is not a very great misalignment, but would seem to exert a certain amount of force pulling the strings out of the notches in the saddle. The other complication is that the Phillips head screws for adjusting the intonation of the octave strings are in the path between the ball-end of the string and the saddles, and every octave string rubs against the heads of those screws. Going around these screw heads also exerts pressure in the string pulling them out of alignment. In this photo the ball end of the octave string is just below the screw for adjusting the intonation of the main string (thus aligned with the main string) then has to angle 'down' in relation to this photo (or 'up' if you were holding the guitar) to get to the saddle. But on the way to the saddle the string is in contact with the screw for adjusting the intonation for the octave string. It's difficult for me to believe this is the way it's supposed to work. It's been suggested that perhaps the octave string in meant to go under the adjustment screw, come up through that hole between the screw and the saddle. That seems weird to me as that would necessitate two 90 degree bends in that short distance. It would seem to solve the screw head issue but seems counter-intuitive to me. Am I in the market for another bridge, or all they all this way?
