First off, after spending about a week, tweaking the Epiphone ES339 I purchased, and playing it every day, switching back to the HB RS4 was simply an astounding experience. (duh)

Still with out a doubt, the RS4 is the best electric guitar i have ever owned and played.
 It was sort of like going from a Toyoto corolla (Epiphone) to a Rolls-Royce, not that I have ever driven one, but again, just incredible high praise and wow, on ML's R&D, and production of such a spectacular instrument...

Now back to the question....
I notice on the tone pros bridge assembly, the saddle adjusting screws are not facing the hard tail, but rather they face the pick up for adjustment.
Not a big deal, just sort of threw me thats all.
Other owners have the sa,e set up?

any guesses as to why?
thanks.

Originally the ARB1 was designed for the saddle screws to face the pickups.much easier to adjust in my mind{somewhat warp mind but its my mind}

From my understanding, the traditional orientation is like Rob says.  My Forum V RS-4 bridge is oriented that way.  The LP type guitars I've been given to work on have them facing both ways about 50/50.  I mostly set them up with the bridge adjusting screws facing the way they came to me.  I will flip them though, if I think it will intonate better given how much saddle adjustment is available.  Some of the bridges you come across are not perfectly symetrical  so you can gain a little bit of sharpness or flatness by flipping them.  Of course, you can reverse the saddles as well.
