LIII – help with Bridge/Saddle Alignment

Hi All,

After a little help/advice – got a very early LIII (Rosewood) and it would appear that the E and B strings are pushing themselves out of the saddle grooves (upwards towards G string) and it does actually look like the holes in the plate (from the block) are actually slightly out of line with that saddle groove and the strings are then naturally trying to push themselves back to their natural straight line.

Been suffering with a few string breaks and wondering if this is contributing to the issue and even though the guitar has probably always been like this – should it have even been like this?

Has anyone else come across this before and how did you get around it?
