HELP!!

Ive got practice in 1 hour haha, and my floyd is completley taken apart and i still have to string/set up this bitch. (liscenced schaller floyd rose, the one ran put on my guitar)

I took my floyd apart last night and soaked all the parts in wd-40 to clean it up, When i put the saddles back in last night i relized some of blocks came up higher than the others. After doing a shit ton of research I relized they have differant saddles to go conform to the radius of yoru fretboard. I have no idea which saddles accompany which string, ive been on google for about 5 hours now . Ill take a picture, the only thing I have to go by is these numbers, they are each in pairs, 2 zeros, 2 ones, and 2 twos. I looked around a while and also saw places sold the differant height saddles, they also explained what strings they are used on, but they dont tell you the numbers.

You want the saddles to be high in the middle, but low on the outside, so the strings follow the radius of your fretboard. So the saddles would be (E-e) low, medium, high, high, medium, low.

I don't know which numbers correspond to which height, but you should be able to see that

Hope that helps

Haha yea, im retarted, it was pretty dark last night (and i wa fucked up) so i couldnt really see the height differance. I took the saddles to the kitchen (much light) and layed them out and could totally see a differance. 2's are the highs, 1 mediums, and 0 lows. I knew what order they were supposed to be on the bridge, I was just to retarded to relize how easy it was figure out which on is which just from looking at it.

Atleast this thread will be here for future reference to anyone, since there is absolutley nothing on the rest of the internet regarding saddle placment on floyds.
