Prevent SAT 30 Tremolo Saddles to angle sideway

I have an Ibanez SA with an SAT 30 Bridge. Because of the construction of the saddles there is only one screw at the side of the saddle to raise/lower the action.
But because of that all the saddles have a slight angle to the side.

See this picture of the bridge here:

This looks really awkward. Is it meant to be like this? I have no problems sound wise but I kinda bugs me just to look at it.

Re: Prevent SAT 30 Tremolo Saddles to angle sideway

short of getting new saddles I can't really see any easy way to fix them. I see what you mean, it would bother me a little.

I don't know if there are replacement saddles (who fit!) which have two screws for adjusting the string action.
PLUS - its a piezo bridge. So finding a drop-in replacement for the saddles is quite impossible.

Re: Prevent SAT 30 Tremolo Saddles to angle sideway

I have a daft question to ask, so please forgive me. Is it meant to be like that?

The only reason I ask is that with only one saddle height screw I can't see any way of avoiding this happening. I understand though, it would annoy me!

Yeah thats my thought! Maybe this is supposed to work exactly like that. But I've never seen that on any guitar before.

To clear this up: I went to a music flea market today and there were two Ibanez SA Guitars with that exact tremolo. I checked them. Both of them had the same angle on the saddles. So I can say that this is the way it is supposed to look.
