    Help! How does this bridge go?

    Doing a dry run of my double cut but the one-piece bridge is baffling me. It Must hook on to the posts the way I show it here but if it does, the strings must feed through front the front, wrap around the back and over the saddles. But that would leave the saddle screws pointing forwards, underneath the run of the strings. What have I missed?

    No pic attached, but if itís a wrap around bridge that sounds right. If you look at tuneomatic style bridges they are the same with the saddle screws facing forward and the strings running over them. Itís not really an issue as you should be slacking the string off to adjust the intonation anyway, which lets you move the string enough to get a small screw driver in.

    Thank you for the reassuring information.
    I have to edit photos from my phone for size before I can post them here and sometimes I am too lazy.
    Hope you are safe where you are.

    Yeah we are ok apart from orange skies and smoke haze.

    The forum uploaded is a bit of a pain for pics. I use Imgur which gives you a BBcode to copy and paste into your posts. I find it easier.

    Quick How to here:
