Can I file my ghost saddle to achieve a different dimensions or string spacing?Updated 6 days ago

Do not attempt to file the notches on Ghost saddles! 

The piezo crystal is only 0.040" below the notch, and if you expose the pickup, the string will short it out and won't work anymore. Furthermore, the pickup has been positioned optimally in relation to the string, so it may change the pickup sensitivity if you file the notch deeper. This will affect the string balance when you file some notches and not others.
