I think I meant to say saddles. I'm confused. After extensive research I've found they're the same thing, but I can't delete this post to end my embarsment.

No need to be mortified. It was funny though, just laugh at yourself. :D If there's one thing this forum could use, it's a good dose of Lighten Up.

I'm glad you left it up!

I have three concert guitars: 650 mm/Cedar top. On each guitar, I have sanded the bridge nut and tweaked the head nut for better playability. If you take too much off the nuts and get string buzz, you can buy new parts fairly cheaply and start over. If you do it over a long period of time, you should be able to get it just right. I hope this helps. Playing again . . . Rognvald
