I think the twanging is because my high E is up against bolt on the bridge when non of the others are. All of the other parts of the bridge are straight but this one. Can someone please help me!

It might be the angle of the picture, but it looks like the spacing of the saddles doesn't line up, particularly on the high E. That saddle looks to close to the tremolo bar hole as well.

This exactly. Did you replace the saddles for some reason? They don't look right. Especially with that screw sticking out on the back.

I agree with the first two replies. The angle could be messing a bit with how it looks, but the string hitting the saddle height post could definitely be doing it.

Is the string twangy on any/every fret? Just open? Is the saddle tilting in that direction (or at all)? And as ryan asked...are those the original saddles? If not, did you replace/adjust them around the time the twanginess began?

I agree, if you look at the lowest string in the photo it looks fairly central on the saddle and then they go increasingly off centre for the higher strings.

Something is a little funky with that bridge. Saddles are definitely not right. Measure the bridge and saddle widths. Something is fukked.

I changed the saddle to fit well on the bridge, now the twanging sound is gone. All of the other strings sound fine however should I make them all line up anyway? Would this make any difference.

If it ain't broke...


If you want to try to make em right, you can feel better about it being "right", but if they sound fine now, I doubt you'd notice a difference. (also, I'm not sure exactly how you're 'fixing' them, so messing with it more may or may not cause more trouble than good)
