    I put a Gotoh 201 bridge on my fender...Set it up and it plays fine. My only question is...the G and D string saddles are pretty much the same length, just doesn't seem normal. The 12th fret on both strings are = to their open strings.

    Leave it alone, or did I do something wrong?

    No big deal. If the intonation is right, then it's right. Some of the old Fender guitars (as well as other makers) had two strings per saddle, so they were always paired like that.
