This is what I've been looking for.

I love these Telecaster bridges! They are the only thing I've found that is close to an original vintage Fender Tele bridge without spending too much. The gauge of steel is correct as is the fit and finish. My only criticism is that I wish the vintage style bridge were available with the compensated saddles. I end up having to order the vintage bridge plus the compensated saddles and then scrapping the straight saddles that come with the bridge.

Immediate improvement

I installed this bridge on my 2012 MIM Tele, replacing the "flat" style bridge and six saddles...and installing Golden Age pickups and cts pots with PIO cap. I noticed the guitar was much brighter acoustically. I love when you can hear an upgrade without the guitar plugged in. I can't say if its the bridge per se or if its the brass saddles but I love the results. This lower priced Tele now sounds and looks like much more expensive models.

Geat fit and finish

I replaced a squier bridge with this one. The pickup fits better and it has more twang.

What a difference!!!

Replaced the 6 saddle bridge on my MIM Tele with the 3 barrel saddle bridge #4583. Wow, this Tele really pops now! It's clear, crisp sound is what you'd expect from a Tele. Sustain was greatly improved as well! If you are considering making this mod on your Tele, DO IT! It's a bolt on operation, no drilling required. I love my "new" Tele and wouldn't trade it for anything.

Much better forming and finish than the Fender replacement part, and made from a thicker gauge of metal. Priced attractively as well.

Nice bridge

These are nice bridges, but Stew Mac needs to make another available option: traditional ashtray bridge with comp. saddles. That way you wouldn't have to buy an extra set of saddles.

Nicer than the original

I love these traditional bridges. I prefer the brass saddles. Finish is better than the ones from Fender, and the size is perfect to cover the whole route. No sharp edges and with everything included, at a great price. Highly recommended for traditional bridges on your Tele.
