I just recently bought a Supra, awesome guitar.

Now I'm trying to adjust the string action on the bridge, which is a standard 2011 non locking tremolo.

More specifically, following the manual I understand that screw F adjusts the overall height of the bridge, and that screw G controls the height of the bridge saddle.
But there are two mini holes/screws, right? Which one should I operate, the one on the left or the one on the right? Everything else is pretty clear to me...
I hope someone can clarify. Thanks.

I'm not sure I understand.
You must use G to raise or lower the action of each saddle, in very rare case we use F

Hi there, are you Patrice the owner? wow, I'm honored.

Anyway, I posted a link to a photo I took from the manual (I hope you don't mind).

So basically, I use F to lower the whole bridge, OK?
Then, the bridge saddles G are connected to 2 different mini-screws I believe, one on the left and one on the right, so which one should I operate? Do both lower the bridge height with the same results? I hope I explained myself, of course feel free to correct me as I'm fairly new to this kind of bridge...

I recommend not to touch F
You have to turn the two screws G.
To go faster, unscrew one of them, make your height adjustment and when the eight is set, screw the second one up to when it gets in contact with the vibrato base, so booth screws hold the saddle.
