        the springs for the saddles are on the wrong side of the bridge. They need to go behind the saddles and in front of the bridge plate...

          Well... Yeah. We know this. Obviously the previous owner didn't. Any idea why they may have done it like this?

            Maybe when/if they tried to intonate they couldn't get the saddle to move back far enough with the spring?? Decided to move them to the outside.

              My guess is he took it all apart at some point and forgot which way they went on and proceeded to put the springs on backward.

                I've never seen saddles arranged like this. It hasn't been a problem, though. There was enough adjustment in them to intonate properly.


                Aside from the springs in back of the bridge it looks like the saddles are in position for the guitar to be strung up to be played left handed.

                To sell faster,the pawn shop might have restrung it for right hand use without maybe knowing or caring about the intonation.

                  It's an interesting theory. If the pawn shop restrung it, it would've been a long time ago... This was one of those "immediate restring needed" used guitars

                      You can bet, but it'd be foolish. I AM the one that took the bridge apart in order to reattach the bridge plate. Which involved taking off the saddles.

                        Don't know but it's intonated for left hand use. Probably owned by multiple people. one being a lefty, who then might have sold it to a righty, maybe a beginner who knew nothing about saddle placement. Must have sounded terrible.

                        Could also be some used strings might have been slapped on before or after pawning.

                          First year for the Affinity series. Back then they had full size 1-11/16" nuts, 22 frets and full size alder bodies. The slabs of rosewood on the necks where massively thick too. Nice find.

                            Thank you! First year for the Affinity Series, huh? I'll have to do a proper side-by-side comparison between this one and my 2003 Aff. Series. Never liked those big ol' headstocks...

                              I have it's twin. Purchased off craigslist late last year. MIC 98. This one has 1 5/8 nut and full depth body but I think it's basswood. Decent guitar for the small price they seem to go for.
