    Tuning issues with Maestro Vibrolas?

    Hey Brooklyn, thanks for the discussion I must say though I’ve never experienced this. Even with nylon saddles, never worn and strings never sawing over them…never. I have however ALWAYS observed the bridge tilt back and forth with vibrato use. I’m a not so spry 55 year old, do guitar...

    Tuning issues with Maestro Vibrolas?

    EDIT: corrected post from earlier: The only bridge specific issue in tuning stability comes from bridge post hole tolerance being too big on some guitars so the bridge slides back and forth on the thumbwheels, not returning to the same spot, now out of tune. this is 100% remedied with DOMED...

    Tuning issues with Maestro Vibrolas?

    A well cut nut with a bit of lube is necessary for the guitar to be strung up correctly in tune. When tuning the string needs to glide smoothly over the nut without grabbing.

    Tuning issues with Maestro Vibrolas?

    Again, the strings are not sawing or grinding over the saddles. Are you hearing the “ping, ping, ping” of the windings passing over the saddle?

    Equalizer vs new pickups: what say you?

    Passive pickups, try your best to achieve tone you want with the right pickup & guitar combo. EQ boosting frequencies will raise noise floor to various degrees If you feel you need to EQ go active pickups
