Hi Guys

I am a recent purchaser of a cherry '73 Hagstrom Viking 1N. Beautiful guitar. It is almost identical to the 871176 getting around on this website (http://www.hagstrom.org.uk/visstory/DavidFeight.htm),and very close in serial number.

Just wondering if anyone has experienced issues with intonating with this bridge? I do not have enough saddle travel to lengthen the string to where it needs to be.

I am using standard 9-46 strings.

Is there a way to remedy this? I am a regularly playing musician and I need a guitar that is going to intonate perfectly or close too.
