What Maintenance Is Required?

There is zero maintenance required with an EverTune bridge.

The bridge does come with some thick black damping grease installed on the bottom of each saddle near where the string goes through the back of the guitar. This damping grease is to prevent buzzing from the vibration of the free floating saddle. This grease should never be removed. It is almost impossible to reapply once the saddle is assembled.

User Error & Accidents

If a saddle breaks for some reason (like someone overturns the hex key once it stops at the tuning limit and thus breaks the tuning screw) swapping out a new saddle is straightforward.

The first two videos below show the removal of both types of bridge. The following two videos demonstrate how to install a new saddle or comb.

Do Not Force the Tuning Screw

How to Remove and Re-Install the Bridge

Required Tools:

Standard Phillips head screwdriver

Standard 2.5mm hex head screwdriver

String unwinder and cutter (very convenient, although optional)

Additional Notes:

The T model is identical to the F model except that the bridge pick up will have to be removed as well. The G model also requires a standard flat head screwdriver.

How to Install a New Saddle

Swapping out a new saddle is straightforward.

The first video below goes over the main parts components, the main reasons a bridge will need servicing, how to disassemble, service, and re-assemble a bridge. The second covers how to install a new comb when it arrives.

The tool used to push the teeth into place is a small flathead screwdriver. Please note that all the pairs of teeth of the comb face one way except for the last pair which faces the opposite way. This last pair slips onto the low E side of the bridge before pushing the other teeth into place (as in video). Please remember when looking at the guitar from the back it is easy to confuse the low E side because it seems reversed.

  • Servicing the Bridge

    Shown is the F model bridge. The only difference between the F, T and G models is the faceplate.

  • Updated Comb Install

    For the F and T models, the new comb can be installed while the bridge is in the guitar. For the G model, the bridge will have to be removed from the guitar.

How to Install the Side Spring Clip

If required, the side spring clip goes under the faceplate between the two mounting lugs on the high E side.

When installing the bridge it compresses against the rout and the high E module. Since the bridge is now pressed from both sides (the tab on the low E side and this spring clip on the high E side) it should be impossible to have space between saddles. This should correct any saddle to saddle buzzing caused by minute space between saddles.
