I've confirmed this to jdog privately but, for the avoidance of doubt - I'm most certainly still in!

My 4003s/8 is currently strung "octave string first" but I've always wanted to reverse the pairs so that the fundamental is on top. It's only ever been the need for re-cutting the existing bridge saddle grooves to cater for the opposite stringing that's prevented me from doing this in the past - hopefully this is the opportunity to get my eight-stringer just as I want it.

Besides the bridge I want a spare set of saddles extra. Is this do-able?

Good thinking, Ill post there too!

Probably not interested in doing separate saddle orders, just to keep this simple and manageable, but we'll see.

Hi guys - not looking like we're even close enough to making it worth it. Thanks to those who pledged anyway though! Cheers, J
