Re: Knife Edge Question
It is difficult to diagnose what is happening without seeing the guitar in person. From the pic you have provided, the treble post seems to be moved towards the neck making the base plate sit non parallel to the cavity routing and the trem to close to the corner of the routing. And that is why the trem knife seems to be longer. But it could be probably an effect to my eye due to the pic angulation and the position of the string saddles due to the intonation pattern.
That guitar is made out of a soft wood (basswood) and the stud insert may have moved into the wood oblonging it. Also the neck relief, neck alingment, twisting, need of shimming, nut height and fret dressing could afect your string height.
