With all the guitars I've owned ( Martin, Gibson, Taylor, Guild, Ovation) I have always done my own set up. All the different guitars seemed just fine to me and I played professionally with them all. After looking at Kent Evertt's set up DVD and reading Bill's section on setup, it seems the correct procedure is to sand the saddle curved to match the radius of the fretboard. I have always sanded them flat so the entire saddle sits flat in the bridge. Am I missing something critical?
I'm near the end of construction of my first Kit and I want to give it the best chance of survival:))
