    The amazing thing about this little guitar is it sounds great acoustically..... It's quite loud for it being a solid body :hmm:

    I believe the lightning bar tail piece is good to go as is.

    Are the strings slipping sideways off the saddles with heavy "plucking"?

    OK, I misinterpreted your prior question about the saddle.

    No need to do anything then. As A1 wrote: "I believe the lightning bar tail piece is good to go as is."

    Regarding your previous acoustic clip:
    Plenty of people have checked into the Olympic Hotel but few ever leave. :laugh2:
