Correct. Mine came from the factory setup so I could go to dropped D without the bridge moving out of position. It's one of the things I love about this guitar.

Since I've got someone else here...

Even if it fell off or was left off accidentally, I'm still undecided about whether or not I should replace it. If it's supposed to be there, I would at least like to have the part to keep in my...

Ibanez S5470 fine tune screw question

I have an Ibanez S5470 and noticed that all of my fine tune screws have a cir-clip at the bottom to keep from backing out too far except the low-E . The low-E screw has a groove for a clip, but no...

That's the answer I was looking for. If the knife edges are sufficiently strong that I don't have to worry about wear from it sitting uneven, then that's the solution - I'll leave the saddles...

I realize they come in these heights to match the radius of the fretboard, but that doesn't factor in for the fact that the lower pitched strings have a greater range of motion - which is why you end...

Rearranging saddle heights on a Floyd Rose?

I've got an original FR on my Schecter Blackjack ATX C-1. The saddles are all slightly different heights, with the 1st and 6th strings the lowest, 3rd and 4th the highest. I read somewhere that...

Any recommendations for advanced instruction in West L.A. area?

I've been playing for close to 20 years now and, though I'm not as good as I should be for that length of time, I'm pretty decent. However, I really need to improve on music theory, shredding...

Looking for advanced instruction in West L.A. area

I've been playing for 18 years and most people would probably say I'm pretty good. However, I've got just about no shredding skills and would really like to work on that. Can anyone recommend a...

I tightened up the bridge truss a bit and wiggled all the wires around again last night, but that still didn't fix it. Right now, I've got the bridge truss tightened so the dowel is somewhat...

Troubleshooting a harmonic buzz

I have a Breedlove Pro D25/SRH that I bought a few months ago. The day I got it home, I noticed it had a slight buzz whenever I play a D. It's most pronounced on an open D string, but any D seems...

Yes, but my question is what gauge. From what I'm seeing, it looks like medium.

Factory string for a Breedlove Pro D25/SR???

Does anyone know the factory string specification for a Breedlove Pro Series D25/SRH? The owners' manual doesn't actually say for this guitar. It specifies a light gauge D'Addario EXP for the Atlas...

The feedback through the PA system was not actually resonating through the strings, it was the wood of the guitar itself that was resonating. That's why it freaked me out. I couldn't damp it from...

Thanks for your help. What you said is pretty much what I thought on a gut level. The resonance didn't go on all that long, so I figured no harm done at this point. But I can't imagine anything...

Not my amp (belongs to the studio), so I'm not worried about that.
