I just got one of these bridges today to use with my modern player jag neck and I don't get why these things are portrayed to be so bad. I think the build quality is pretty damn good and the saddles are completely adjustable. I have no problems with it. I can't see the warmoth modified bridge being THAT much better.

if it's anything like the jag/jazz ones the adjustment screws move even when the damn thing isn't being played. most likely after a couple of days your carefully set up bridge will be flat against the body, strings fretting out all over the place.

Clear nail polish does a nice job of keeping saddle screws in place.

Well I could always use lock tight or different screws. Isn't the bridge made for 9.5 radius anyway? So if I take the screws out and just adjust the bridge by the two posts I should be fine.
