Gibson Gospel Saddle Relocation

A customer brought in the Gibson Gospel with intonation problems.  Strobing revealed that the intonation was off but I wasn’t prepared for how far the saddle was misplaced.  Using the “intonator” I located the correct positions for each string.  It was nearly 1/4″ off on the bass side!  Not entirely believing this, I double checked it with the “saddlematic”(and against several other Gibson acoustics.)  My plan is to fill the slot and rout a new slot in the correct location.
