What a difference

By M Jones from Vancouver, BC

Bought these to replace the old nickle non-compensated saddles. They were easy to install and adjust, so nice to not have to compromise on tuning. Maybe it's just me, but the sound seems brighter too.

Easy way to better tone.

Bought these StewMac Compensated Bridge Saddles to go on an old generic Tele and i couldn't believe the difference. The pickups had more depth and all around better sound than the steel ones i had on it. These saddles will work on any Tele and they make a Big difference! They are compensated so they intonate fine. Well worth the price. Thanks

My old Partsocaster was headed for parts cannibalization do to horrible intonation. These saddles made it sound wonderful.

I used these on a restoration of an old tele copy. The difference in tone was substancial (replacing the old nickel ones). Plus ya just can't beat the brass look on an old tele. Customer was very happy. Guitar intonated easily. Highly recommended.

Just installed a set on a Classic Vibe Tele & the intonation is pretty much perfect. I added grooves to stop the strings slipping sideways but otherwise a 5 star product!

Compensated Bridge Saddles for Tele

By KL from Christchurch, New Zealand

A good upgrade for a Telecaster style bridge. The ones that come with the saddles were too short for my project. Thankfully, the screws for the original saddles had the same thread. In fairness, the bridge I put them on was a cheap copy though. For sound and intonation, no Telecaster should be without these.

Excellent Upgrade

I couldn't believe how much better my tele sounded after this simple, inexpensive upgrade. Highly recommended.

Tele is closer to proper intonation than it's been since I've owned it. The reason these compensated brass barrel saddles. Great price great product!

Works well

This helped a lot in resolving intonation issues. While not perfect as strings as grouped, it goes along way to help. It is very fairly priced. I put this on all my teles
