You're sure it's the saddle? Sounds like the change in humidity is affecting something. Perhaps a small drop of CA glue in the right spot might fix it?

it might b but i noticed where the strings meet the saddle there is little notches being worn down. could this be the problem? oh and what the heck is CA glue? is that some kind of wood glue?:confused:

Sorry for the pun but can you put your finger on it and make it stop?

I'm in no way an expert so I can't give that kind of advice :D

The bridge on my old Kamaka is all wood without a separate saddle piece. The tension of the strings have created shallow grooves in the bridge over the years.

CA = Cyanoacrylate which is a generic term for glues like Zapİ or Super Glueİ
