Hey guys, i need some help and i hope someone knows about this specific problem.
I love my flying v and bla bla bla, but since i own it the damn thing gives me some problems with intonation, i think its the super old (and cheap) tune o matic bridge.

the main problem an yeah i know this is the most common thing is that my G string is always a little flat, and the saddle cant go any further.

my questions is, is there a replacement bridge which has a bigger intonation range?, i dont care about price.

it will be nice if it can fit my current set up with drilling new holes, that scares me too much because its a very old guitar.

here is a pic of my current tune o matic:

thanks in advance guys!

Hey Adrian!
Here's something you could try....
Take the saddle out and turn it round, so that the bevel faces forward (like with your E,A and D saddles) this will give you 2/3mm more string length which should be enough to sort your intonation!!
