Have just bought a replacement 'aged' bridge for my LP, potentially stupid question...

Do I need to match the settings of my current one in order for the intonation to be spot on, or is does every bridge need to be set individually? Cheers :thumbup:

I'm guessing it depends on the exact dimensions. If they're almost identical then set the saddles roughly like the old one, then adjust as necessary. My ears are not even in the same universe as "pitch perfect" so that's been fine for me. You can adjust from there if you can hear any problems with intonation.

That's kind of what I had assumed I'd need to do. Intonation drives me nuts, if it's even a little off it becomes like some crazy OCD or something :crazy:

Just don't play past the first few frets!
