    These appear rounded. The original Gibraltar's edges came to a point. Definitely different.

    Rounded or not. Having the sides higher than the saddles is uncomfortable.

    Yeah but look closely. Clearly the saddles aren't adjusted to appropriate heights. All of the screws are off balanced. I'm sure they're a lot closer to the height of the sides than they look.

    Sure they could recess it into the body a bit and use longer screws for height but why not just take those stupid sides off? or at least make them like the standard hipshot bridge..

    But the single ones above are definitely all out of whack

    I agree. To be honest the pictures above make it look like you could get the saddles to a good height easily...the pic of it installed looks really uncomfortable.

    *grumblegrumble* would much prefer a 25" or 25.5" scale option but I may still bite on a seven at some point. Very tempting...
