Can you flip saddles on a Nashville tune-o-matic bridge with c-clips?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A couple of the strings (G and low E) need a little more length to intonate properly.  I watched all the videos on how to flip the saddles and tonight I eagerly sat down and took off my bridge and... hey where's the retaining wire?  

Oh. C-clips.  Great.  Can you remove these and put them back on in order to flip the saddle?  How?  Would it be better to just buy a 3rd party bridge with a little more distance to it?  If so, any recommendations?

Thanks!
