    Can someone tell me what I should look for when I'm setting the string height. I'm getting a new adjustable bridge and what should I keep in mind when I'm cutting the grooves. Unfortunately there aren't any luthiers about where I live so would have to do all that by myself.

    Thanks so much

    What kind of strings? What kind of playing do you do?

    Is the bridge one of those pre-made adjustable bridges or will you be adding adjusters to the bridge blank yourself?

    It's mainly for jazz playing and its a pre-made bridge. Would have to cut the grooves

    You'll have to fit the feet first, which means you'll have to devise a way to keep the feet from spinning. 7-10mm G-E is a common minimum height for jazz playing with steel strings.
