About This Item

Early 50s style bridge for a Tele® lead pickup. Three ungrooved, unplated brass saddles are true to Leo Fender's original designs.

Allen adjustable string height. Stamped-steel baseplate with satin-chrome finish. Mounting screws included.

String spread 2-1/8" (53.97mm)

Baseplate dimensions 3-5/16" x 3" (84.14mm x 76.20mm)

Designed for string mounting through the guitar body. Four mounting screw holes have 2-9/16" (65.09mm) center-to-center spread.

Adjust saddle height with a 1.5mm allen wrench.

Installation note: Replacing a modern Fender American Standard Tele bridge with a Traditional Bridge for Tele will require additional drilling.

This is what I've been looking for.

(Customer's Reviews)

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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.
