I've taken a few rolls on Minolta XG-M with different lenses and some images have an underexposed edge. It takes a while for me to go through a part until I forget which lens / settings I used. But when I look through the pictures, I'm pretty confident

That pretty much excludes shutter problems, I guess.
Could it be the lack of a lens hood?
