    Default Floyd Rose saddle with limited fine tuner range?

    I was wondering if any of you guys have ever had this problem...

    So, on one of my Floyds I've got a low-E that doesn't seem to go down (raise pitch) as far as the low-E saddles on my other Floyds do. It seems as though the bottom of the saddle itself has more meat on it so it hits the baseplate way before the fine tuner screw maxes out.

    I imagine the best solution is to replace the saddle but I know not all saddles were created equal.

    Now, this is an old OFR, I think from the '80s. Where can I find an actual Floyd Rose low-E saddle that's not some bootleg junk that's not the same height?

    You can also get them on eBay or reverb. I'm not a fan of FU stuff so I'd go with the original.
    Did you check the spring that is right below the fine tuner?

    Ah, maybe they don't.

    I don't know how much different it would be since yours is from the 80's but you can buy saddles from Floyd Rose:
