Hi everyone. I'm new here. I'm also fairly new to strats (altho, since recently have 3 Strat Squires and a Tele CV). Little help please. I've got a question about filing saddles. Saddle-c by Dr Carrot posted Nov 1, 2018 at 12:40 AM I used to have the Chinese-stock-standard ones that I decided to replace with Fender-looking ones. Just got them today to find out that there's no notch on them! So, I diligently trawled the web to see what I am missing here. It seems like many strats have saddles with NO grooves/ notches. Is that right? How do you bend without having the string slide? I have a LP, with roller saddles that are too big for the strings, and they slide inside that thing like there's no tomorrow.
