Saddle Height Adjustments

28 Mar 2017

Q: How do I shim my saddles to match my guitar's radius?

A: The standard radii on Floyd Rose six string systems are 10" with the preinstalled shim and 12" without.  To change the radius on a tremolo, it is recommended that you shim the individual saddles to match the preferred radius on your guitar.  A small piece of copper or aluminum tape is an inexpensive and simple way to raise the saddle height.

A standard radius gauge can be used to measure your neck and bridge's radius:,_fingerboard/Radius_Gauges.html
