Not saying this is the only way to do it, but I don't often see it mentioned too often and I ran across some pics I took that I thought I'd offer. When setting up your Strat, your bridge saddles should be approximately in the upper middle range of the saddle screws. If your screws are at the very top or bottom of the saddle than you need to check your neck angle. See first pic. This works for me in that the screw tops aren't so high as to chew up my hand. The 2nd pic shows a straight 1x2 stick flat on the body extending to the nut of the neck. Carefully mark the end of the stick where it meets the corner of the nut and fretboard in the 3rd pic. The 4th shows the distance from the BOTTOM edge of the stick. (An Eric Clapton Signature Strat I had was set up perfectly so I'm using that as a standard. Note also that the strings are tuned to standard, not slack.) This neck measures to 18/64th, or 9/32nd of an inch. I'd guess if you were within 1/32 of an inch you'd be able to set your saddles an appropriate height. If your measurement is much less than 9/32nd then your neck is too flat and you need to increase the neck angle by adding a shim to the outer half if the neck pocket. More than 9/32nd and the shim is applied to the inner half of the pocket. Hope this helps someone. It's a simple cheap check on keeping your neck angle as well as the action you've set when ever you remove or replace the neck on your Strat. I should add that this should work on Mexican and USA neck and bodies. I know some Asian bodies are thinner so that would throw off the 9/32nd measurement.
