Disappointed

By

Verified Buyer


The actual bridge was okay, though the height screws are a little rough and I'll have to file them off. The screws holding the actual bridge in place are really bad, though. Out of the box, one was the wrong size, but I figure I'll make due. The chrome is very easily scratched by the set screws. Just in doing some basic placement, I got scratches. Then when I was trying to attach the bridge, two different screws twisted off using a hand-powered screwdriver. I've had good luck with gotoh components before, but this was very disappointing overall.

Huge Improvement!

I needed a bridge to replace the vintage 6 saddle Fender bridge on my Nashville Deluxe Tele and this one was just right. The vintage Fender bridge rattled like crazy and the Gotoh solved that. I've also noticed big improvements to sustain and tone compared to my previous bridge. The only negative was that the mounting screws didn't sit completely flush to the plate but I didn't knock any stars off because it had no impact on performance. For the price I really don't see a better option for a 6 saddle. If you've got a MIM Nashville Deluxe that came with the vintage steel bridge then this is what you need.
I'd also like to commend StewMac for their insanely fast shipping/processing. I placed my order late on a Thursday with standard shipping and it arrived on Saturday.

Bought the black version for my American Special Tele. Im playing on Drop C, so the standard 3-saddle bridge was a pain. Glad I bought this one and it looks radical with the black pickguard on a yellow body! Thank you, Stewmac!

Gotoh Modern Bridge for Tele

I replaced my original MIM tele. bridge with the Gotoh Modern Bridge. The whole process from string removal to string replacement took only about an hour, and most of that was string replacement. The fit and finish of this item were impeccable and it was a simple matter of removing a few screws on the old bridge and reinstalling this new one..a perfect match. I can now intonate each string individually. The smooth groove on each saddle allows the strings to lay in with no chance of movement. The heavy metal used in the new bridge gives me even more sustain, and the chrome finish gives it some nice bling Like the allen-wrench adjustment on all the screws..no chance for head damage like on the old slotted adj. screws. Get this, you won't regret it.

I replaced a vintage style bridge because of intonation problems with the Gotoh Modern bridge. The replacement was easy and intonation was successful after the new install. The Gotoh Modern Bridge is a quality bridge at a good price.

I'm really happy with the intonation. Especially after rechecking neck relief, string height, radius and bridge intonation. Its very much in tune and seems to stay in tune longer. I don't wince now as the sour intonation spots are gone.

Worth Every Penny!

My Tele had a cheap, stamped tailpiece. Tuning and intonation sucked! 50-something bucks later, and HOT DAMN I've got a sweet playing Telecaster!!! Fit perfect. Great looking piece that gets noticed. Improved play-ability 300%! If your Tele has a stamped tailpiece this one is, Definitely Worth Every Penny!

I put this bridge on a cheap Tele type guitar. After making some adjustments to placement all went well. Intonation is right on, and better sustain is there because of the weight of the bridge. 2 thumbs up.
