Alright, so I've got an Aria 793 acoustic, made around 1979. After a few years being lent to a friend, I got it back recently only to have the bridge saddle crack on me while I was tuning it up. The only place I found nearby to get a replacement was the local sam ash, and they only had the rectangular, un-shaped bone pieces in stock.

The guitar has an adjustable-height bridge, and the slot between the screws is about an inch and a half shorter than the new saddle, so I need to cut it to length, then get it shaped down into proper saddle form. Does anyone know the best way to go about doing this?

If you're in drop D (the most METAL tuning ever) you can do this :

B-x
G-x

A-x
D-7

It's the same as this!

You can change tunings?

You bastard, I just spent three hours reading that damn site because of you! :P

Thanks for that, though now i might just have to take it in to a luthier's for a full once-over. Any similar sites that mention electrics? I've got a couple that I want to learn how to set up.
