Hi all,

I'm hoping someone can offer a suggestion on this one, as it's a recent development:

I have an `84 360 WB with the standard bridge, and am using a 10-46 string set.The guitar is equipped with an Accent vibrato. The high "E" has been popping out of the saddle slot lately. I do not think its related to vibrato bar use, just fom picking and strumming.

What should I do? I suppose I could take it to my local luthier, but goofy problems like this sometimes disappear when I do this. I am wary of using a miniature file on the slot for fea of leaving behind an invisible burr that could cause my string to snap at an inopportune moment (is there an opportune moment for a string to break?). Should I just replace the saddle piece? I believe they're available at this website at the online store. Or should I buy a roller bridge, since I use an Accent vibrato-where the hell can I find a roller bridge anyway-I haven't see any at the Ric online store page of this website.

Please advise, thanks.
