Hi,

Might be a strange request....

Anyone any thoughts on raising the height of the finger rest a bit by maybe adding another three grommits ?

I'd like mine just shy of the string height.

Would this entail fitting longer screws ?

Jim.

Jingle Jangle to Jim Jams here...

Let's do a bit of spelling remedy here...

Gromit is the mouthless doggie who keeps Wallace as a pet human.

Grommet is that chewy rubber thingie under the upper guard (the piece of acrylic you call a finger rest).

The screws are 3/4" (19mm) long, and they are long enough to be able to fit another grommet under them.

If your guitar is still newish enough that the grommets are springy, you may find that simply loosening up the screws a couple of turns and allowing the grommets to expand might do the trick.

might have to watch out for the strings hitting the piece of the upper pick guard that extends out between the pickups if you really want to get it "just shy" of the strings. might want to try a 370 upper guard.

Hey thanks JJ..

Yeah..I guess I should've know better..

By the way I unscrewed the top pickguard and gently prized the grommets apart, there are two of them on each screw..

I then screwed it back together very gently and you know what there is a degree of adjustment there..

I see that I can purchase additional grommets through the boutique

I just prefer the guard to be a bit higher than normal for strumming.

I've been brought up on an elderly Burns Baldwin Vibraslim and the Baldwin plexiglass pick guard on that was just shy of the string height..

Cracking cheese Grommit! ;-)
