    Worked out great for me! There's some lean on the studs but I can live with it. Once the world starts getting back to normal I'm thinking about grabbing some RetroSpec studs. Hear they're a higher quality than Kluson and maybe they'll have a tighter fit. Acoustically, between the aluminum Tail...

    After a few months, just a few pickup adjustments away from perfection!

    Hey all, The final run of my Les Paul overhaul has finally arrived. For the last number of years I've ran my Antiquities with the cover on the neck and the bridge uncovered. I've installed my new pups the same way but am finding this new bridge pickup way too bright compared to my old...

    Any quick tips for string spacing when notching Faber ABRN Saddles?

    This is rad, I'll print it off and try it out. Thanks for sharing! Also, been brainstorming on Pshupe's technique. I think once I get the two e strings situated I could measure the distance between their inside edges, subtract the total gauge measurements from that (Ernie Ball Power Slinky, a...

    Any quick tips for string spacing when notching Faber ABRN Saddles?

    I've read a few recommended spacings for the e strings, I think the best bet's gonna be to try a few and noodle around to see if they slip off anywhere and adjust accordingly til I find the sweet spot, then rulers and calculators to get the rest bang on.

    Great stuff going guys! Wondering if anyone with the stew mac string spacing ruler might be able to describe the measurements it uses? Can't seem to find any information and not in the position to order one in at present.

    Any quick tips for string spacing when notching Faber ABRN Saddles?

    Yeah, but the Faber uses little C clamps on the saddle side of the screw to lock it down and keep the saddles falling out. Might solve the issue if it's missing.

    That sounds like a pain. I'm assuming you've checked the C clamp they use to hold the saddles in?

    Chyup, definitely had a partial role in me getting the notched saddles initially.

    Thanks Peter. It's a little out of reach for me at the moment, mostly because I'm cheap, and because my girlfriend will probably kill me if I skimp out on groceries over a ruler hahaha! If I can figure out how it's lined up I might be able to make my own though. Really appreciate all the input...

    Thanks Peter. I'll look it up, see if I can scope out their measurements and use that!

    Any quick tips for string spacing when notching Faber ABRN Saddles?

    Hey everyone, I ordered a preslotted ABRN from Faber, doubting my ability to notch myself, only to find I had to notch them anyway as it was just a guide notch more or less. Anyway, all seemed to go well but the high E was off just enough to slip off the frets. I just ordered a set of unnotched...

    I like the way you lay it down though! It's gonna be interesting to see where I finally end up and I'll definitely be keeping this in mind as I listen. Actually the sax thing's great, cause as soon as this sucker's back up and running there's a load of cheesy eighties sax lines I've been wanting...

    Was gonna go with Retrospec but ended up with Throbak for at least the time being. If the steel studs end up being the winner for me I'll be hitting them up for some studs though! I'll keep ya posted on my findings!
