    Default Ray Ross Saddle-less Bridges?

    Has anyone tried one of these?

    I can see how the design could improve tuning stability, but as for all the other effects it could have on your instrument, it seems like you would have to try one in person to know the exact extent of the changes.

    It's a neat idea, if enough people on here have positive experience with one, I might start a bass build with a Ray Ross.
    Once I had myself a million, now I've only got a dime.
    Difference don't seem quite as bad today.
    With a nickel or a million I was searchin' all the time
    For something that I never lost or left behind.

    Can you adjust the height?

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    i havent seen one in person but it looks really cool. you can adjust the height of each anchor individually. the little wheels are for adjustment, one for intonation and the other for string height.

    Man I hate it when I see a piece of engineering so simple and functional that it makes me feel stupid.

    I think it looks cool, too. Is there a guitar version?

    Interesting, how is the string height adjusted?

    From what I understand the round circular plate under the string ball raises and lowers to adjust height. The smaller round piece at the back end of the bridge adjusts intonation. Looks like a small Allen wrench can fit into the holes for easier adjustments. (?)
