    I don't think they're upside down. Easy way to check would be whether the heads of the height set-screws are accessible from the top when they're installed. The impression I get is that many of the saddles sold aren't grooved for the strings, so it shouldn't make any difference as long as the orientation's correct, and yours looks right.

    I'm anxiously awaiting an update on this one. Are you a weekend warrior that only gets a chance to build guitars on the weekends, Jared?

    And me three. There don't seem to be many builds in progress here these days, so when one comes along, we're all getting a vicarious thrill, lol.
