I mean that it almost seems the pivots that the floyd fits onto are like they are too close to the front of the recess. It is certainly a strange defect if it is as I have never heard of another ESP like it. The bridge isn't really to low. Probably a little higher than what you would expect ona floyd. But I can agree they are troublesome. My les pauls just down tune and that's it. Ask a floyd to do that and frankly you are screwed.
