    Hello!

    So I am a total newbie to Evertune bridges. I recently acquired an LTD EC-1007 ET. It's a wonderful guitar but it throws me off when playing it because the spacing is off between the A and D strings. How can I adjust the bridge where it aligns correctly? The nut itself is fine. Just the bridge is off. Any help???

    Here are pictures for reference...

    The Evertune saddles do float a bit, so if one is slightly off try pushing it slightly. I can kind of see it in the picture, but it's an easy fix. Otherwise it's pretty standard string spacing: 10.4mm

    You might also want to check out the comb in the rear access panel to make sure all the tangs are fully engaged. If not, that can throw off the spacing and cause some buzzing.

    It should like this (newest comb version):

    I had a similar thing with all the units in the cavity at the rear being "twisted" over to one side (touching the cavity). I took all the tension off the strings, adjusted the intonation screws and just tried to move everything through it's range of movement. After that I refitted the strings and tightened them up and everything was back in place. Hopefully something similar should help!

    Thank you for the help guys! Problem fixed. My monkey brain just doesn't understand evertunes very well. Lol

    It's a slight learning curve, but worth it once you figure out all the nuances!
