I don't think so. I'm not sure the intonation screw will allow for that much angle. Even if it does, it's gonna be tough to intonate due to the angle.

I think it may intonate but I would suspect that the extra height would put a lot of additional compression on the screws and might make them unstable or even buckle. :toopid:

At the angle it would take to overcome the height difference, I'm not sure you'd be able to get a screwdriver in it reliably to make intonation adjustments.

True enough. Shim that bad boy!

Haven't seen anything to indicate that this issue has been solved, but I was browsing the GOTOH website and they have saddle replacements in various forms and sizes (dimensioned diagrams for each type are given).

None of those will work for this bridge. The intonation screw needs to be on the left side, not in the middle.
See the close up of the bridge on this page: http://matsumoku.org/models/ariaproii/cs/cs-250.html
I know this isn't the same exact bridge but they use the same exact saddles.

Thanks Jorg,
I missed that point.

Replacing the bridge entirely is the practical solution considering the existing bridge is literally corroding.

It is an option but will probably require drilling holes. It may also require filling previous holes first.
Either way, you'll still have to shim be because you won't find a bridge that fits in the recess and meets height requirement.
Personally, I'll do whatever it needs to play reliably.
