MARUSZCZYK BRIDGE ADJUSTMENT

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I recently bought a maruszczyk jake off here.

There was a little too much neck relief so i decided to do the relief and intonation.

but it has abridge i have never seen before with 4 tiny allen screws 

I think i have workede out which is the saddle locking screw but how do you turn it with the strings on ?

You can slide the Allen key under the string as it is at an angle. However, you will need to loosen the string to move the saddle, as under tension it is hard to move. Here’s an extract from the user manual.

Yeah it's a useless POS, I wrote Adrian about it, and he, in typical frosty manner replied something to the effect of - what do you want, it's a cheap bridge, yeah you have to loosen the strings if you want to intonate. It's an old design, if you want something better go buy it -- brilliant.

Ah! A nice Hipshot A style copy 🤘

Yeah they're really junky, which is a pity cause the Elwood is such a nice jazz bass. Even a bent plate bridge would've been better.

I’m surprised these cheap bridges were ever used on those basses!
