    as mentioned in another post I am experiencing problems with my high e string popping off space control bridge and am looking at synchro sonic and it looks to me like it would solve this problem but would like some advice before getting one

    Either a Tru Arc or Compton with the correct radius will work better than the space control or standard bar bridge. I replaced my Synchro bridge with a Tru Arc. The SS is a complicated piece of kit.

    It looked like as had deep saddles plus the thumbwheels would mean no way it could pop off , I have rare early Astro jet with no tension bar

    Unless you’re a dedicated fan of the Melita (like me), I’d just get a Tru-arc or Compton. Even more so with Embie out of the picture.
