Hey guys!

I hope someone can help with this. It'd be greatly appreciated.

I was playing tonight and a little screw thing fell out, if you look at the picture the 2 screws are loose that are attached to the low E. I recently changed my hand position to make my palm mutes sound better, and I must have been knocking the screws with my palm. Any suggestions on how to tighten these back up and prevent it from happening again? (Besides not knocking them any more as this has already occurred to me.)

Thanks!

Oh, that's no issue at all!

You need to get a metric allen wrench set and raise the saddle back up. Not a problem in the slightest.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Thanks! haha. Total noob question but I can't see where to screw/unscrew. Do I go in through the back?

Nope, from the top. The action screws are your problem here, the intonation screw isn't something you should move.

All of the screws on the bridge take a phillips head. The only place that takes an allen key seems to be at the top on the headstock. Is that the bit you mean or am I getting confused? Sorry to be a pain!

Those screws that I circled are allen screws.
