Ideal height for floyd rose

Hi, is there an ideal height for a floyd rose? In a perfect world should the rim of the floyd be sitting above or below the body of the guitar?

Depends on how it's installed and the guitar in question. Typically, you want the base plate of the Floyd to be parallel to the top of the guitar.

Just remember, don't try adjusting the height of the bridge when the strings and springs are on it. Moving the height posts while the guitar is under tension can dull the knife edges of the Floyd, preventing it from staying in tune.
