Hi everyone right i decided to take my floyd to pieces to give it a good clean. Now when i came to reinstall the saddles i forgot which order they were originaly. The problem i have now is that 2 strings are always lower than the rest due to the saddles not in the correct position in accordance to the appropriate string. On the underside of the saddles there is a number. there is two number 4's two number 12's & two number 14's does anyone have a clue the order the saddles go in. Ive worked out that the number 14's seem to be the highest of the saddles.

The numbers differ between manufacturers, but the tallest saddles always go in the middle (D & G strings), and the shortest ones go on the outer positions (the E strings).

So, you'd put the 14's in the middle, and then you need to figure out which of the 12's and the 4's are shorter, and position them accordingly.
