Men has only one string groove per saddle, but I have seen some with multiple grooves.
The g and the e strings are NOT equal distances from the edge of the fretboard, although there is adequate distance on either side. Both my MIM Precision and my Squier VM '77 have equidistant spacing on e and g strings and are lined up to their pickup poles much better.
Having said that, I did have to make some serious adjustments to the truss rod on the GED to get it within Fender Spec. And you you likely know, the truss rod nut is at the neck heel, so the neck has bee off a few times already.
