Re: advice on graphite strat saddles
    Seems like the main problem I had with one strat bridge was the chrome finish was flaking off two of the saddles and cutting into the high E and B strings. I replaced the saddles with graphite ones, but after doing that I realized that swapping the low E and A saddles with the high E and B saddles would have also solved the problem.

P.S. The graphite saddles reduce string breakage considerably, but they can also change the sound a lot (that might depend on your pickups). They might buzz for the first few days so make sure you allow them to break in completely.
