  • Major String Imbalance with Anthem

    I recently had a professional luthier install an Anthem PU in my D35. The B string is much, much louder that the others. The E is somewhat louder but not to the same degree. I removed the saddle. The bottom angle was reversed so I fixed that. The bottom of the saddle groove is perfectly flat as is the bottom of the saddle. The groove is a little tight. I’m out of ideas.

    Okay, solved my own riddle. Although saddle do not seem all that tight in the groove, I removed it and removed what amounts to a thin layer of dust from both sides of the saddle. It’s now snug but easily remove with fingers. Best of all the balance is great.

      Hey Taylor,
      Thanks for posting.

      Glad to hear that you figured it out. A tight saddle can definitely cause balance issues, just as easily as an uneven saddle or slot. Nice job troubleshooting!
