Mounting a LP style bridge

Recommended Posts

I,m building my first guitar. I've got a Strat style body and I'm mounting a Les Paul style bridge on it. How do I locate the position of the bridge on the body. I've noticed that on LP style guitars, the bridge is set up at a slight angle on the body. I'm using a 25.5 scale neck. Should I just measure 25.5 inches down from the nut and locate the high E saddle at that point. Then move the low E saddle back 1/8 to 1/4 inch back to get the angle I need?
