    Default Peavey Wolfgang Floyd Rose Saddle Markers

    Hi Everyone:

    I also posted this to the Peavey guitar forum.

    It's my understanding that the saddles of a Floyd Rose bridge are specific to their respective locations. With that said, a Peavey Wolfgang I recently purchased seems to have the saddles of the FR bridge randomly shifted around, as the guitar is in full adjustment but string height varies in an awkward way. I've noticed markings on the bottom of the saddles when cleaning other Wolfgang bridges (i.e. 1A, 1B, 2B, etc.). Does anyone know the correct order of the saddles on the Peavey licensed FR tremolo based on the markings?

    Thanks!

    Andrew,

    Ideally, you want the bridge saddles to match the fretboard radius. You should be able to lay out the saddles with the shorter ones on the outside and the taller ones in the middle.

    Saddles should look like this -- --. Yes, I know it's an exaggeration, but it should form a smooth curve. There may be shims under the saddles if they are all the same height. In case of shims, shim the G/D saddles so they are higher than E/B and A/E.

    Hope this helps. If not let me know and I can walk you thru it.

    Scott:

    Thanks for the post.

    Yeah, the idea that the 1st and 6th match, 2nd and 5th match, and 3rd and 4th match (roughly) always seemed logical. I was hoping it would be as simple as identifying the saddles from their underneath markings, but I'll just eyeball it.

    Thanks!
