Well, it's on the return trip to Kiesel to get those posts sorted out. I'll update if anything changes.

I returned them immediately for something else as Trem stability is an absolute MUST HAVE for me. Went back to my trusty Floyd's. I did NOT however notice if it had leaning posts like that so I can't comment if that's normal.


I too didn't care for the bridge - mostly for other reasons but tuning was a bit flaky as well.
It seems like most folks are having better luck with them in general so that's a good sign.

I hope it works out for you.

A happy ending to the story!

It arrived about an hour ago; in the freezing temps, in tune. Posts are upright, and the holes re-drilled/shimmed. Playin' great now, no signs of tuning problems.

One neat factor is that I'd ordered the standard Ash body, which is normally 2 piece. After looking at pictures, and now the guitar end-grain, I'm dead certain it's a one piece body. I didn't see that at first, but it's a cool upgrade. Beautiful guitar, and I'm glad it was taken care of.

Best neck I've had, still. It's good to have it back.
