    this is what it looks like.. its gotoh bridge , but the saddles have a nut on the end... does anyone know if its possible to replace the saddle on these.. it took it of but it seems like the nut on the end isnt going to pop off... not sure if this makes sense... its the better way to go, just replace the whole bridge?

    I'm guessing you have a snap clip underneath, you need to pull out the snap ring, then the saddle traverse screw will come out of the bridge housing, then screw the saddle off the screw, replace it, and put it back in, and put the snap ring back in place.

    I replaced all my saddles on all my guitars with GraphTechs. I love 'em.

    There may not be a snap ring on there, now that I'm thinking about it- it could also be a little bent staple looking wire on there. Those you really have to try hard not to bend them out of shape while removing them.
