When I put some new humbuckers in my MIM '72 Tele Deluxe RI, the pole pieces didn't line up with the strings very well. Then I measured the string spread at the saddles from E to E on the Fender stock bridge... 57mm, WAY to wide to use with anything! The Gotoh has a string spread near 53mm, much more usable. Just a little precision drill skill, and everything lined up well for easy installation. This bridge sounds and feels amazing, looks great, and is easily adjustable. Now my Telecaster is the monster it should be! Excellent product.


Fully adjustable

Second Gotoh bridge in this style i've used. Nice quality and finish. Maybe should have went with black....?


Love almost everything..

Works great, easy to install, excellent quality, adjustments all work very well. My only complaint is the saddle height screws are too long. They stick up above the saddle way too far to be comfortable. I've tried to find shorter ones, but the threads don't match on any of the replacements I've tried.
