I've got a lil problem on my Gibson Sg special....the scale length is too short....
It seems the tune-o-matic bridge isnt so tune-o-matic when it comes to thick strings and low pitches. It wont let me fine-tune my scale length to a point where my strings are in tune al the way up the fretboard.
Anyone know of a way, or a bridge that i could use to fix this?
I'm using the following string thickensses in C standard: 12 16 24p 32 44 60

The specs for my guitar are here

anyone got any ideas?

dead link.

umm, you know how the saddles are slanted in one direction? which way are the slants pointing?
do you need to go flatter or sharper btw?

which means longer scale length...do you mean the slants are facing towards the nut? if so, you gots a problem here, otherwise, you might try turning the bridge around

^oh alright, you might be lucky then, since the point where the strings lay on the saddle is a bit farther away from the nut that way thus giving it more space to vibrate
