I was restringing and cleaning my acoustic and the saddle fell out. How do I know which way it goes back in?

Thanks.

That depends on the saddle.

If you have little ramps on one edge for compensation, that's 'up' (touching the strings). One side of the saddle should be taller than the other - that's where the low E string goes. And if one edge is rounded and the other is flat, the flat side goes down.

Hope that helps.
