    I've used 3M Finesse It II car wax on all my VOS guitars, and it works great. Takes off all the gunk and polishes it to a gloss. The sucky part is you have to remove all the parts - pickups, tuners, everything. You apply it with a dry cloth, then wipe it off. I do this to the entire guitar twice, then use Stewmacs Preservation Polish twice in the same method as I did the Finess It. Afterwords you'll have a nice clean glossy guitar.

    It's possible your bridge posts are slightly off perpendicular, but the recent thumbwheels have a tendency to tip or lean backwards on the posts. In other words, the thumbwheels rock slightly on the posts making it look like the posts are the problem.
