One High Saddle on Edge Trem

I've got a new (to me) RG550 that I'm almost done setting up. The only remaining issue is a slightly odd one. The G string is slightly (~0.3mm) higher than it should be. It sounds minor, but I actually do notice it. I plan to swap the G saddle with the low E saddle as a sort of compromise, but what do other people do when they encounter this? File down the saddle? Shim the others?

Re: One High Saddle on Edge Trem

Is there a shim under the saddle perhaps?

Check if the lock screw washer is under instead of over.

Nope, it's on top.

Maybe this saddle is just a little taller than usual.

I removed the saddle and ground down the underside by about 0.3mm. That did the trick!
