Alright, so I bought new saddles for my SG. I've posted a question about how to remove my saddles in the Electric Guitar forum. The person wasn't sure and she told me to try over here to see if you guys can help me.

I cannot take the screw out that keeps the saddle in place. I honestly don't know what to do. There is no clip or wire holding the screw. As soon as the saddle reaches the end, I can no long rotate the screw.

Here's a picture of my saddles if it helps.


So can you please help me out? I rather not spend more money on a guitar tech doing it for me.

Why can't you take the screws out?

I really don't know. I turn the screws and the saddle begins to move closer and closer to the edge. As soon as it reaches the edge, I can not rotate the screw anymore. It gets stuck. I can only rotate it to move the saddle farther from the edge.

So I really don't know how I'm going to take the screw out. I tried taking them off on the other saddles and the same thing happens.

Help, please?

There's gotta be some sort of retainer wire or clip holding the screws in place. Have you taken the bridge off of the guitar and looked at the bottom of it?

try turning all the way in the other direction. sounds dumb, but just make sure. if not, inspect every inch of that bridge, because either somthing isnt right, or there's somthing else holding the screws in.

What brand of guitar is this? I'm assuming your using the stock bridge correct? Different companies use different things to hold them in, most use some from of clip underneath. More info could help us, help you.

You are going to have to take the bridge out for a good look.

Take the bridge out and look closely, with TOM style bridges there is normally a tiny circlip holding in the screw at the head end.

I never thought about looking underneath it...

I did that and I FOUND THEM. Now I feel like a total dumbass. Thanks for the help!

But now I'm mad because I found out the saddles weren't big enough. The guy at Guitar Center said it would fit. I ended up breaking the saddle.

Hopefully I'll get a refund since he gave me misleading info..then again...i broke the saddle...so I dont know.
