Washburn D25S-12N sadle
« on: August 02, 2010, 01:53:06 PM »
Hi everybody,
I'm new to this forum, but since I just purchased a used Washburn D25S-12N I thought I could ask you for your help or advice ...
My new - and great sounding - Washburn hasn't got a compensated saddle and I was wondering whether that's how it's supposed to be, any thoughts? The saddle is also very low, which makes me wonder whether it would be a good idea to have a new compensated one made. All suggestions are welcome, as I said I'm a newbee to washburg [:D]!

The saddle is how it's supposed to be. Are the strings fretting out. Is there a problem when playing. Is your intonation off.

Ah, I see. Thanks for clearing that up!
No the strings are in the right position and intonation is okay. But the previous owner did shift the saddle just a tiny bit as the string were cutting out grooves. And it looks as if he's been 'cutting away' at the saddle too, it doesn't look like it's supposed to look IMHO. But anyway if it doesn't have to be compensated I can easily make a new saddle myself.
Thanks again. I'll go back to playing my Washburn now.
