Strings Popping Out of Saddles
« on: October 09, 2018, 05:52:07 pm »
Everytime I do a string bend on Fender Modern Player Jaguar the string pops out of saddle. It's a tune 'o' matic style bridge.

I've just re strung it with 12's and have strung it wrap around style.

Fender Squier AffinityHSS Stratocaster
Vintage V100, Epiphone Dove Pro
Fender Mustang 1, Peavey Vypyr 30
Started the guitar journey 10th Janaury 2013.

Is the stop tailpiece too low - meaning not enough pressure across the saddles?
Is the stop tailpiece 'diving forward' due to not having locking posts?
