I just received my official Rickenbacker 4003V2 tailpiece and noticed that when I place it on a flat surface, it doesn't sit flat. It rocks. The two corners opposite each other are low points so it rocks diagonally. I knew my original 4001 tailpiece was warped with tail lift, but do these new ones come "pre-warped"??? Or is this a bad casting? It's off by 1/16" or so...that can't be right.

Here's a link to a video showing the warping- and pointing out some other cosmetic issues with the tailpiece.
