I aquired an old T.V. Pal. It has extremly low action. It is slightly cupped in front of the bridge and I don't know if that is normal or not. Is there any way to raise the action?

Apply a little crazy glue with a needle tip or pin into the groove. If you over fill, you can use a hacksaw blade to gently lower it.

You can raise the Saddle by cutting up an old credit card and using it as a shim.

It would be really helpful to see a closeup photo. There's no info here re. the exact style of bridge. Integrally molded saddle? Separate saddle glued in? Pictures please.

And I really don't understand the answer here about "the groove". Groove in bridge? Groove in saddle? Groove in nut?

This is like reading a question and then an answer with every other word missing.
