Hi, so I have an electric acoustic I had just perfect with heavier strings, went to a little thinner on the E and A, got some buzz, just went ahead and made a new saddle for it and all it well.
However, what would be a trick, if there is one, to shimming one side of a saddle that has to sit on one of those piezo pickup cords? I tried a shim made of wood on one side – I 've shimmed mando bridges before – but that created a “gap” between the saddle and cord, and that affected the pickup on the middle strings.
I was thinking about a layer of super glue, just looking for like .3mm, and I tested a few glues to see how hard they harden. Clear nail polish was pretty hard. Didn’t actually try that in practice though.
Is there a way this is done with those bridges? (I know if the shim I made had run the full length of the saddle it would have sounded fine, but I just wanted to adjust one side temporarily to try lighter bass strings, and the high strings height is perfect.)
