All I can say is that the bridge on this Padauk sets the intonation as should, string height, anchors the strings on the base plate(bottom) not on the rear edge as yours Barry and has no issues with grub screws. The stretch over the pole pieces is fine. You do have a slight kink from anchor point to saddle(as we all know) but this IS a different bridge to yours and therefor should not be referred to as crap. It does the job well. Maybe not the worlds best design, I agree. From the anchor point to the beloved barrel the string length is about 3/4", whereas strung from the rear of base plate it's about 1 1/4" giving the kink a lot more leverage on the barrel, that would make a difference. I've had this guitar for a number of years without any problems from the bridge. Must have made it on a Monday, after a weekend of saki.

Loved that little spat.
Westbone, you picture 2 Pads but they look like they have different bridges...? Just curious.

The smaller of the two is the same , almost, as the normal Thunder type bridge. through body stringing but the saddles are .5mm smaller and are not interchangable with normal thunder ones, the base plate is smaller too, with three screws only. I've now seen 5 bridges on these. 2 in photos, normal thunder type, heavy duty on Paduak II and a trem type.
