Installing Bridge Question

Recommended Posts

Move your high E string saddle about 80% forward travel, leave a little extra, but not much.

That saddle should meet your 25 1/2" scale marker, set your bridge so that saddle moved forward like that sits right on top of your scale line.

I also use a 4' square placed down the centerline of the guitar and bump the bridge up against it to make sure the bridge is -perfectly- squared and aligned before I mark and drill bridge and string-thru holes.
