1 Krang 3 years ago G'day Gretschaholics. I'll try to make this as short as possible.My first Gretsch was a magnificent G5448T gold top double cut Electromatic.I love everything about it except for the acute angle the bridge has been mounted, which effectively means there is not enough adjustment in the saddles of the stock TOM bridge. I simply can't more the saddles forward (closer to the neck) enough to intonate the E, A, and D strings. They are kinda close enough to "live with" but I simply don't get why the bridge is mounted at such an acute angle in the first place.I was a member of another Gretsch forum for a while and this issue was regularly mentioned there. I've had trouble searching for this issue here.I've been in contact with Fender/Gretsch USA and have a cuppla email replies that lead me to believe the bloke who replied to my question either didn't read my question about this apparently widespread issue, or simply didn't understand it. (I'm happy to post his replies here if I'm allowed to. ?)My 5448 came fitted with 10's which were too light for me so I've since moved to 11's Neither string gauge would intonate properly.My magnificent new G6128T-1962 has a floating bridge so no problems with intonation of the high and low E strings. The others fall reasonably close.Is it a common observation here about the ridiculously acute angle of the fixed TOM bridges on the Electromatic Jet guitars?
