The screws for the height adjustment of the saddles are way to long. When the action is lowered (had to go nearly all the way down when upgrading from vintage bridge) the screws dig into your palm and even hinder playing ability, HW1 Tele.
The bridge was about what I expected, nice looking, well made, and solid. My '52RI Tele has the 7.25" neck radius, and the high E string could not be lowered enough without filing down the bottom of that bridge saddle. Not a big deal to do, and probably not necessary with the 9.5" neck radius. I would buy another one.
Stew Mac was great, this was my first order. I received prompt email confirmation of the order as well as tracking info when it shipped. It arrived in one piece on time. What more could you ask for?
Great choice for those seeking a quality modern-style Tele bridge.
I replaced the bridge on my Made in Mexico Tele with this bridge and I am very pleased with the result. Much more sustain and growl. Tone for days!!
Thanks Stew Mac
I have a Highway 1 Tele, nice guitar, horrible bridge. I ordered this bridge as a replacement. I was surprised at the heavy construction. Had to drill the pickup holes a tad for the stock mounting screws and did indeed see brass. This bridge feels VERY solid, was a direct fit, a 20 minute install including drilling. A huge improvement in sound and intonation. Very pleased indeed.
Bridges are a great product but very disappointed to see Stew Mac continues to ignore Left Handed Guitar players and is closing out this product in left hand config.
I've been using these bridges for 20 years. I would be lost if StewMac stopped carrying them.
I put the bridge on an ASAT Classic, it took me 30 minutes to install, with no modifications to the guitar. Other than not having to deal with the "box" edges of a vintage style bridge anymore, a side benefit was a great tonal improvement, I am impressed!
This is an excellent replacement for the "constantly out of tune" traditional Tele bridge. Very well made, very easy to adjust. Outstanding. I've owned it for several years and its stood the test of time.
