edge lo pro bridge set up

hello guys
i have a new Ibanez S Prestige S6570Q
not sure about the bridge though and how to set it up correctly since it has a curved top and not flat , I have been on ibanez rules off course , but I wish to have your help
does the bridge (the little rectangular) has to be parallel to the surface area in between the pick ups or do I need to follow(more or less) the top just around the bridge (the little rectangular) ?

The "top" is slanted so you don't go by that on the Edge/LoPro

the rectangular cutout (see attached inked version of rich's photo) is the knife edge insert that should be perpendicular to the post/stud. You can tweak a little if you want more pull up for example.

it came like this from the factory ..i just tuned it up (and not with fine tuners because I ran out of it) strings are oldish maybe that's the reason ???

Re: edge lo pro bridge set up

That spoiler is generating a little too much downforce just tighten the trem claw springs a quarter turn and retune until the little rectangle sits perfectly in line with the edge of the cavity. It’s literally almost there, but just leaning a hair too far forwards.
