Because the screws don't fit in the saddles well enough to stay put
Hidden: 
This happened overnight; the night before, I had adjusted each saddle height properly to get rid of the buzzing. I wake up to find it like this.

Also, the saddles will never not buzz because of this
Hidden: 
this shit is crooked as fuck

Hidden: 
i mean god damn look at it

Here's a little closer up
Hidden: 


Anyways, if I wanted to replace it, would I be better off with a Fender Jaguar bridge, or should I go with a roller saddle TOM, like I've been considering for a while?

like i said in the other thread, a tom bridge or roller is going to need a LOT of shimming or filing down of the bridge

have you tried setting them up and loctiting them?

This or the warmoth modified mustang one, but the staytrem looks sweeter actually.

I had the same problem with my Squier Mustang bridge. I just broke down and picked up a Japanese bride, now it works fine.

I got new grub screws at Ace hardware. You can get the Squier bridge to work just fine. Internet harder!

I'll let you in on a really easy fix for this problem.

Step 1: Throw that bridge away.
Step 2: Purchase a nice Fender bridge or a TOM

lol

That sounds like the best plan. I figured I should get an ABR-1 bridge and tape the shit out of the posts. I tried it with the TOM off my SG, string spacing and everything was just fine. I could use it if I shimmed the neck, but I'd rather get a better bridge.

Mustang bridge with electrical tapes posts is the best way to go IMHO.

well yeah that, or the staytrem bridge, which is kinda the same. i figure i might just pick up a modified mustang bridge. if needed, i'll just have my friend loctite the saddle height screws, since i would inevitably fuck it up somehow.

shimmed the neck with some business card, stuck the TOM on. it works fine. intonation is a bit off, but i can deal with it for now. i guess i could just wait and save up for the stay trem bridge, but for now, the TOM does fine.

also i did some research on finger board radiuses (radii?) and found out that the difference between a 9.5" bridge radius and a 12" bridge radius is very unnoticable

check it out
12" & 9.5", 14" & 9.5", and 12" & 14"


noticable difference between 14 & 9.5, very little between 14 & 12, and nothing to cry about between 12 & 9.5

not exactly. it is used on the squier mustang as well, but the saddles are crazy tiny. also my main problem was with the saddle height screws being shit, and i imagine it would be the same with the blacktop jm/squier mustang bridge.

here's the squier bridge


and here's a fender bridge

err, no one is disliking the mustang bridge or vibrato here. I would much rather have the mustang bridge on my jaguar, but proper mustang bridge, not the skinny little thing that squier calls a mustang bridge. damn, i wish i spoke portuguese to explain to you better. alas, i only know spanish. (and english, but that's a given)

anyways, here's a pic of the bridge i put on, it worked fine with just a two business card thickness shim at the base of the neck pocket. I kind of like the sound that i get with the TOM, makes it sound a bit warmer, but I don't know if thats just because the strings are much higher above the strings (i did adjust the pickup height though)

Fuck this damn stockbridge! I thought, i have solved all problems with it. But last friday i gigged it and the low e-string decided to go for a walk over the whole saddle....

So i finally will drop the bridge and replace it by a mustangbridge. Evil or Very Mad
