Hi, my 360/12 Rickenback just got delivered.
I notice that the bridge/saddle assembly has 4 screws, to thread into the plate that is mounted on the face of the guitar.
Now, those 4 screws are basically not threaded in at all...the bridge is just sitting there. I can tip it back and forth. I assume this needs to be screwed down, but obviously just enough to still allow the strings to not be too low?
The strings were loosened for shipping...

its used...serial # puts it 2006.
ive tuned it up. the bridge leans towards the pickup some, i think its supposed to be more level, so i think i need to adjust down the screws closest to the pickup to raise that edge up.
