Here is a brief video Ed posted on Facebook recently.

I never knew about this adjustment. It makes a difference!

There is a nylon disk that is between the saddle tension screw and the G saddle.

Unfortunately this nylon disk is not found in G&L's online store.

Knowledgeable folks please update whether G&L has dropped this nylon disk.

Do G&L basses made until the late '90's have this nylon insert? None of my four G&L basses made between 1981-1996 seem to have the nylon piece. Not only that, but the older basses have no visible gap between the G string saddle and the side of the bridge. On the other hand, I have had two brand new U.S. G&L basses in the last three years. Both had wide gaps between the G string saddle and the side of the bridge. I'm not sure if this impacts the great functionality of having a saddle lock feature or not.

Interesting Dean.

All the ones I have owned have had the nylon. Late 80s to 90s. All before the 6 bolt.

On some there was no gap between the bridge plate and G saddle, but the nylon piece was still on top of the tension screw.

Others you could see it by the saddle.

Hope more will weigh in.

BTW, Craig, Admin on GbL, pointed out they are offered in the G&L online store, under the Tension Screw description.

I saw the pic of the allen screws in the store, BUT didn't click on the description.
