    Hello all, I'm currently drawing templates for my first build, and I'm not exactly sure where to place the bridge. Its a Danelectro inspired build, so it's 25" scale length with the old school Dano bridge with rosewood saddle.

    The saddle has 3/8" of adjustability back and forth, and can be angled for a bit more distance on one side. So far, I've been thinking of placing the bridge so that the middle of the bridge adjustment is right at 25" and I have 3/16" of adjustment back and forth. Would this be sufficient for compensation, or should I move the bridge back further?
