(Mastery) thimbles & bridge creak

Post by Loobster » Mon Oct 12, 2020 9:42 am

So I have a Mastery bridge/vibrato set up on my '62 thinskin AVRI. Until now the Mastery was rocking a fair bit in the thimbles and creating a super annoying creak. I assumed it could be something to do with the thimbles. Got hold of the mastery thimbles and didn't install them because I assumed the original thimbles would be stuck in the holes and difficult to get out. Well, tonight while changing strings the bridge fell out and the original thimbles with it, so I thought, let's try to push the mastery thimbles in. Without much effort at all, they pushed in. I tentatively restrung and lo and behind the creak is gone. The bridge still moves a tiny bit but Woody from Mastery assures me that's normal. So yeah...awesome! Try it if you're also have problems.
