Millennium BXP Question

Postby jj23 » Fri Apr 14, 2017 9:26 pm

Hey folks

I have a question about my Millennium BXP bass. The saddles that are in the hipshot triple lockdown bridge now are so tall that they make the strings much higher than they should be. I have adjusted the saddles to the lowest possible position but they are still way to tall. Does anyone know any magic tricks with these to get the strings lower or know of shorter saddles for them?

Thanks

Slacken and remove the die cast string blocks then simply file a bit of the bottom. You could also add a shim to the neck pocket.
A shim is no big deal,many basses of all brands ship from the factory with them.

I got 1.25mm on G and 1.5mm on E without needing to shim or file but a lot depends on setting the bass up correctly first.

Thanks kodiakblair, I was thinking about filing them but I was hoping someone would know if there was a factory set.

Looks like filing for me
