Question New Ibanez Jem7v Edge Tremolo..Help!

Ok I need some help here. I bought my first Jem7v about 10 days ago from Guitar Center brand new so its non-shelf played by typical Guitar Center kids anyway I noticed the flutter effect wasnt that strong but ive never owned a Edge tremolo before so I didnt think much of it. As of today i took a very close look at the tremolo where the knife edges meet the posts and i noticed the top post (or left post) it appears the knife edge isnt wedged in all the way like the bottom (right post) and that bottom side its obvious the knife edge seems longer or wider than the top post or to put it another way the knife edge is more exposed then the top sides knife edge. What i want to know is this normal and/or are that both sides supposed to be even and both wedged the same depth into the post?? What i need you all to do is look at your Jem if its equipped original Edge and look VERY closely at both sides of where the knife edges meet the posts and note the depth of the knife edge into the post and the exposure of the sides of the knife edges. Im on my iPhoneS4 so i dont know how or if i even can post pics onto jemsite from here. But can anyone tell me if this is normal or do i need to take it apart and reinstall it?

Re: New Ibanez Jem7v Edge Tremolo..Help!

UPDATE: Ok everyone i just took my new Jem 7VWH to a local guitar store and looked at other Ibanez models equipped with the newer original Edge tremolo systems to compare with my Jem7v and im happy to say that it is normal the bottom knife edge is suppsed to be longer and appear deeper into the trem posts. Although i did lightly lube the trem posts and knife edges with non-favored original ChapStick and my tuning stability has dramaticly enhanced! i think that may have been my issue.
