Bridge travel on the Schaller is 12.5mm. Your original looks about the same.
Has the guitar always been 'off' as it looks intonated ok in the photo? Still with plenty of travel.

Have the Schaller on the front one.

That picture was before intonation.  Sad 

Your Pantera on the right... that one has the bridge that I'm really after!  That is the long travel that some Mats came with stock.  If I could find one of those, I'd be the happiest.  Especially a gold one.

You seem to have too many of those Curly Maples in your possession.

I think one of them should be raffled off.   Smile

If it was offered to me for that, I would have ripped their arm off as I took it off them.

Lucky bleeder..... Sad

No I paid a good bit more than a ton for it.

Was just saying, if I raffled it off at £100 a ticket someone would get a good deal....Wink

How much do you reckon the original is out by, a smidgeon or a lot?

Why does this work?  Looks like it shouldn't, but it does!

Real nice bridge actually,  guitar has noticeably more bite with it.  Note definition is greatly enhanced, best of any guitar I own.

I don't understand why the saddles need to be positioned in this manner to achieve intonation.  It looks wrong, yet it's spot on.  Neck is fine, nut is the right height,  so it must be the strings.   Ideas? 

And the guitar looks brown in this photo,  it's not.   It's greenish.  Very odd that it looks so deep brown here, looks like a different guitar.

I was going to suggest imperfect strings as the culprit, but I assumed you had already thought of that. In any case, it looks like you have ended up with a worthwhile improvement to what is already a very nice guitar. You can always re-adjust intonation after your next string change, if needed.
The colour in the picture is probably a result of the direct sunlight, which will enhance the warmer colours, i.e. browns.

I've just noticed that the intonation on my Rainbow is also quite staggered:

What is it, Chad? Certainly looks as if it is doing the business, eh!!

Intonation is effected by all things ie. nut, action height, radius, string gauge and how hard you press, trus rod, frets... go figure...Wink

The Wilkinson Roller Bridge is really nice.  I may use them again, only as a replacement as necessary, however. 

Interesting the difference in sound between all brass and whatever this Wilkinson is made of.  Quite a big change!  Science.  Smile
