Wilkinson Adjustable Compensated Bridge for Tele

The best vintage like tele bridge on the market

Compensated tele bridge

I like it. '69 style tele mutt with Joe Bardens, (9 to 42 strings) deserved to have the intonation issue fixed. I just swapped the bridge barrels and the screws, saving the plate for future projects. Intonation now isn't exact, but a compromise between two strings and is within a couple of cents and I wiggle more than that when fretting so this is now close enough not to bother me at all any more.Maybe with more effort I could get it spot on, but I'm happy now. I never did figure out the old screw bending, anyway. Tone is just what you expect a three brass barrel tele to be. Spanky with quick decay. Nice,easy to do fix.

The Finishing Touch

I installed a Wilkinson Adjustable Compensated Bridge on the "tele" style guitar I made, and I couldn't be any happier. The instructions and dimensions given were accurate, and the intonation is dead-on!

Finally, Vintage Tone with Perfect Intonation!

Great Product

Precise intonation.
This is a very ideal replacement/project bridge for any Tele-style investment.
Out of the box, the factory set up on this bridge was dead-on for my .010 - .046 string gauge. Recommended!

Finish was sub-par

By Poor Finish from Detroit, MI
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, December 27, 2010


The bridge itself appears to be of great quality, but the finish on what I received was terrible. For not being what is considered a cheap bridge, only a small portion of the chrome plating was up to the standards one would expect.
