The reason being I'm not sure why. I'm pretty sure it could have been when I changed the strings and the bridge fell off and as a result the screws that kept it on turned sideways and such. I'm also not sure if the tune-o-matic has anything to do with it but the saddles fall off every time I go to change strings.

Thoughts?


It's a les paul custom btw.

You most likely put the tailpiece on backwards.

And it will fall off, its supposed to, unless you get a locking bridge.

The tailpiece of the saddles? Is there a picture you can show me?

This entire piece comes off, as shown in the picture.

Edit: If you mean that each individual saddle just falls out, you have a problem.

Oh okay. Yeah I knew that just the terminology screws me up sometimes.

So the screws on the end are supposed to face toward the headstock right?

Yes I do, care to elaborate?

There should be some kind of small metal wire or retaining piece holding the screws down so they don't fall out.

****. I know what happened then, I was changing the strings when I first got it and didn't realize it must have fallen out (Or just didn't realize what it was)


I don't think I'm completely screwed right? It just makes changing strings harder I assume. If I can't buy another one (do they sell those?) I guess I can find something to replace it.
