    Has Anyone Ever Set One Of These Up???
    I Just Purchased One And Received It Today, And A Setup Is Much Needed But I Have No Clue What To Do With This Bridge.
    Any Help\Guidance Would Much Be Appreciated.

    Adjust the two screws on the side of the bridge to lift, lower it?

    I have one of these and I lowered the bridge as much as I could by adjusting the screws on the bridge. New strings will help as well. I'm thinking about modding mine with a JB pickup towards the bridge for more bass response. It's actually up for sale in the classifieds right now,

    Yes, I had one too. This is actually a good bridge for a budget bass, you can intonate each string with it's own saddle.
    Mine had dual trussrods, I assume this would too. That is potentially tricky. Site down the neck pointing the headstock at a light source. If it looks uniform side to side then if you do any trussrod adjustment make sure to match the 2 turn for turn. Otherwise you can even it out if it has a twist by tightening/loosening one more than the other. (I think Rickenbakers are like this too, right?)
