The bridge pickup looks fine, looks more like the tailpiece is off to the left a bit.
The strings are angled as they come over the bridge.
The tailpiece looks like it is not horizontal either.


Hey interesting, your bridge pups looks slightly off by 1* like mine :hmm:
I wonder if they put out a few where the CNC was off a few degrees on the programming & then later saw the "oops" and corrected it?
Interesting to see another one just like mine man, perhaps something to note for the future.

To me it looks like the bridge is too far to the right; the strings don't go straight over the screw pole pieces of the bridge pup.

Tailpiece is a bit to the right, perhaps 1.5 mm but is straight. Bridge and pickups are where they should be, the photo is a bit deceiving.

Look at the E-string which is out of the saddle groove in the picture.

Geez, I guess this one better be removed too...flawed beauty.

Sort of on this subject. The nut of my Burny lg-75 gr ( the one with broken neck) has gone on to my black Aria which came with no nut. The low E string side of the nut is very close to the edge of the fretboard while the high E string is way in from the top edge of the fret board. I remember seeing a pic on here somewhere of Slash with his lower E string caught around something bringing the string totally of the board.... on purpose? Now I know its weird but would this nut be part of the Slash sig guitar?
The nut is original and untampered with coz it has the aged lacquer on the sides still.

Anyway just found it strange:D Maybe someone with a GR has noticed the same or I just have a ****ed nut.

Is this where I point out that your Navi only has 5 strings in the checking shot Chris? :)

Ha yes, yes it is!
I was playing it right before those shots to make sure the neck didn't have issues after discovering the mass crazing and snapped the E string on a high bend :D
That is why I like 11's!

Good, I was going to say if times are tough I'll happily ship you some high E strings :)
