a great, simple (but not easy) mod
The bridge in this photograph has individual saddles for each of the strings on a Rickenbacker 12-string electric guitar. This is a good upgrade, and challenging for the tech to get the spacing just right. The stock bridge on this guitar combines each of the string courses on a single saddle, making it difficult to intonate. This is one of many cleaver tweaks we can perform on this unique and characteristic instrument to make it smoothly playable and sound even more glorious.
