maybe the original saddles are not up to usual standards. recently i have bought 2017 CVC as my #2 guitar. apart from usual intonation quirks there was serious tuning stability issue that made me think i should better return it instead of retuning every twenty minutes or so. as a last try before refund procedure i swapped bridge assembly to original Fender pat. pending one with plain steel saddles from my MIM Classic 50. guess what. everything is fine, even intonation is better. Hard to say if noticed increase of overall resonance is due to the bridge (thinner material) or the saddles with more mass. anyway. threaded saddles are not going back. the instrument is really fine.
