You could use a type of shim to raise the saddle. Just as someone would use a shim to attach the neck and body together to adjust the neck angle. So you might be able to go to a local guitar store and buy the shim, otherwise a trip to the hardware store.

anybody know what size the nut is on the truss rod for a jem. Just cant seem to get into that cavity with the wrenches i have. Maybe does any one know where to buy a replacement wrench. I rather adjust the truss rod myself ive done it on other guitars i own.

never used a kahler trem. But i got to say i was really impressed on their website where they stated 6 way adjustable saddles. So the action of each invidual string can be changed and the spacing between strings. I mean it is a $350 trem but it just seems much more sophisticated than the floyd's ive...

resha, I have never had fret work done to a guitar so im wondering what the cost would be to refinish all the frets by a luthier versus replacing the frets by a luthier. I know the price probably varies from place to place but just a ballpark guess would be much appreciated.

Thanks

In Depth Question about the BUZZ

Problem with my Jem. On the high E string the 1st and mostly 2nd fret seem to be buzzing pretty bad. Ive been adjusting the tremelo height to get away from this buzzing noise, im pretty sure the cause of the buzzing is fret wear. The whole reason i like the jem so much and other guitars like it is d...

you know i own a Jem and really had trouble seeing that the one posted above was fake until i saw the raised access panel on the back. The gold bolts and screws could have just been add ons. The only other thing that gave it away for me was the general shape of the body its not quite there but prett...

dumb question

this has been answered several times and i am sorry for the inconvenience but what are the gauges of Mr Vai's strings? And as a side note to anyone with a floating trem what guage strings do you use that possibly are not too heavy but not too light. I had heard Steve uses strings as light as .008 an...

as far as i know the 7vwh is still made in Japan right? and apparently the list price on the EP7 has actually increased. This shouldnt be the case, especially if Ibanez is going to be manufacturing it in China. Ive been playing for more than a few years and have only settled down with guitars made i...

Silly Question

What is the maximum number of springs that can fit in the Universe. Is it 5 or did they add an extra slot because i was thinking of different tunings that i may want to try that would cause much more string force on the trem.

Thanks
