    The low E on my '52 RI does the same thing, it falls against the adjustment screw...

    I decided I'm going to go back to a single ply guard, it's an ounce lighter. Found a decent MIJ parchment guard, 8 hole, would be correct for a '59/'60, just like me ;-)

    I ended up replacing the height-adjust screws on mine with longer ones and the intonation screws with oval heads to get the strings up above the sides of the bridge plate. Hey, I'm a sloppy player and end up picking the side of the bridge plate instead of the high E, lol. But, with those angled, intonation-correcting saddles and the small Fender radius, I had trouble with the two highest strings creeping around side-to-side, so I ended up wrapping the strings once around the saddle, which solved it:


    '66 Starfire XII (sunburst) SOLD
    '71 S-100 (natural) SOLD
    '74 Starfire VI (walnut/mahogany body) TRADED
    '94 X-700 (natural)
