I have seen several JTV59 owners report the problem of the piezo elements moving within the saddle casing of the JTV59 bridge and several people have reported fixing it by applying glue or wrapping plumbers ptfe tape around the piezo. I can see that my piezo elements move just by tugging on each string laterally just in front of the bridge, so I would like to know the best way to address this problem and exactly how to fix it. I have never taken the bridge apart so have no idea how the piezo elements are fixed in or how they come out. So please could anyone that has hit this problem and addressed it, add their solution with detailed steps to this thread? That way anyone that hits the problem in future will be able to easily find the suggested solutions all in one place. Thanks in advance everyone! :)
Strings Breaking On Saddles
OZLO posted a topic in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HDHi! Did anyone else ever get problems with stings breaking on the saddles of a JTV 59? Mine use to, what is really annoying. I already tried pulling an old bass string over the saddles to get rid of burrs. Is it normal that the strings dig a visible sluice into the saddles? Would you dare to carefully grind on the saddles with the piezos underneath? Thank you and best regards
