I know what you (and rx) mean, and I agree that the 'trem footprint' is slightly off on his guitar, but the solution to his problem (trem lifting from the studs when he pulls up) lies elsewhere.
I have a saber with a 'footprint' worse than that, which is performing flawlessly. And since he's saying the right side of the trem is almost
touching the body, that can't be the cause of his problem.
Anyway, look at the angle I meant.. the trem is clearly bottoming out with the 'tail' of the edge trem almost disappearing in the cavity.. although I'd have to see a side view to be 100% sure. My eyes have gotten old in the last few months
In extreme cases, this can lead to the trem resting on the 'inner upper edge' (hard to describe, I could try to draw a picture) of the trem cavity instead of the studs when pulling up. I hope someone will understand the last sentence, lol.
