so I got my faber bridge and tailpiece in today, I decided to get un notched saddles because I wanted to get a bone nut installed and was going to have theguitar shop here do both at once however, he is backed up for quite a while so I figured what the hey, gave it a shot myself. So I placed my strings where I liked them and then used the hammer method for the notches, now that im done it sounds well enough through my amp but unplugged its extremely quiet and my B string and my G string seems pretty dead on fretted notes and bends( sounds pretty good open but still doesn't ring like it should) almost like its fretting out but it isn't because I raised my action way high to eliminate that possibility. I compared this to my Epiphone les paul and it is waaaay louder sounding unplugged and sustains better. so Im guessing I didn't do the greatest job with my saddles but from what ive been reading they only need a slight notch so I don't know. anyways I really would appreciate some of you guys' guitar wizardry to steer me in the right direction!
