    Hey guys,

    I'm GASing for a Mayones Regius and I found them in Store near where I live (yay) the thing is they come with the ABM bridge which I guess it's this one:

    Someone who has a similar bridge or owns a Mayones with one knows if it's possible to intonate the strings with such low tunings like A# for example?

    Thanks in advance. :D

    A# should not be a problem with the 7 string bridge you posted.

    I had a Mayo Regius 7 for few years and played in similar tunings (usually A) and never had a problem with intonation on the ABM bridge. I really liked it.

    Thanks guys but I forgot to mention it is a 6 string and not a 7, I uploaded a 7 string bridge for mistake, it’s still the same bridge just for a 6.

    This should be the right bridge.

    Dude it's gonna be fine, you're overthinking it. A# is only a half step down from B anyway. As long as you're using a reasonable string gauge, it'll intonate no problem. In fact, you could easily tune to drop A# from B standard with the stock strings, because the only string that tunes down is the 7th, and the rest all tune up half a step.

    Thanks for your advice unfortunately the guitar isn't a 7 but a 6 string, from what I've searched on this forum people are having issues with the saddle not going enough backwards to intonate the last string lower than B. I'm really frustrated with this situation.
