hokai, i'll take a photo in one second. The actual individual saddle part (i think that's the right part) is actually lower than the rest, and so now my B string sits closer to the neck than it normally would.

Is it causing problems? Like is it making the string to low? If its not and its just bothering you because its lower than th eothers your better off leaving it alone.

Your Floyd saddle is lower then the rest? and this happened when? Did you take off all the saddles to clean them or something? On the FR, at least on an OFR not sure about all the licensed versions out there, your saddles make a slight hump with the D and G being the highest, A and B slightly lower and the 2 E strings slightly lower still to follow the curvature of the neck. By the way don't go by the back of the saddle where it pivots to increase or decrease tension for tuning, but the from part. If you know what I mean.

Did you take the saddles off at all? for instance, for a sustain block removal or intonation? It sounds like you've either removed a shim that was previously underneath the saddle, or swapped that saddle with one from a different string.

edit: you can buy a shim and put it under the saddle to raise it to a decent height.

right on, i took them all off cause i was getting concerned about seeing moisture there a couple of times, then proceeded to WD 40 it all for general anal-ness and let it dry.

however, if i'd had known there was differences and discrepancies between the saddles i wouldn't have.

Well there you go, I figured you must of taken them off or something. Take them off again and you'll see how 2 are highest, then 2 lower and then another 2 even lower. Not difficult to figure out which goes where Now you know

Ok, take all the saddles off and line them up.

They should make a slight curve with the 4 lowest saddles on the outside, and the highest saddles on the inside. The low E string will be slightly higher than the high e string.



You can see how the D string saddle is the highest. Best you can do is sight them down and place them to how they look.

edit: poster blow me, thats what i've said. The saddles on the outside (being the E, A, B, e) will be smaller the the two on the inside.
