Hi all,

I've been having some issues with my ESP Eclipse. Basically the low E string keeps sliding out of the saddle.

I play with Ernie Ball heavy bottoms, tuned to Drop-D. So there is no tension issues.

I've had a look at the saddle it's self and there is a thin groove where the string usually lies. I've seen online that people have tried filing this grove down to stop the string jumping.

Has anybody got an experience of doing this? Do I simply just widen the grove to accommodate the higher gauge strings?

Cheers
