So what are you asking? That is a righty saddle, no one here can tell you how it got there. If you're switching the guitar back to lefty you'll need a lefty saddle.

Thumbpicks are bearable, every type of fingerpick I've used has been horrible. None gave me the control or versatility my fingertips do, Alaska piks are the worst by far.

Keith is a great player. Are you talking about the percussive stuff he's doing? That's just him hitting down on the guitar with the side of his hand on every beat.

Have you tried playing straight through a PA? I always do that and have no feedback problems (though I am usually only accompanying one singer so I don't need to be incredibly loud).

Don't hesitate to try a few different types of strings over a few months. I have .13s on one acoustic and .12s on another and I like them both for different reasons.

You need to learn chords. That way you'll know which notes can be played with which notes. You should learn what each interval sounds like and how to play them anywhere on the guitar.

How often do you need to adjust your bridge? I said strings as I change them at least once a month. In the last year I've only adjusted my bridge/saddle a few times if I've changed string type/size.
