Didn't work for me.

This is the first part (or material or tool) that I've ordered from StewMac that I will be returning.

This design looks OK and seems like it would work in theory, but I found the saddles to be extremely unstable. As another reviewer noted, the asymmetrical location of the string on the saddle causes the saddle to pivot slightly. I thought I could compensate for this by careful angling of the saddle so that both adjustment screws would set solidly on the bridge plate under string tension, but after a very brief time, I found the adjustment screws moving, leaving only one adjustment screw in contact with the bridge plate.

I considered applying loctite to the screws (the type that leaves the threads adjustable) to overcome the problem with the screws backing out, but this still leaves a fundamentally unstable design - the adjustment screws have too narrow of a footprint for this asymmetrical design. I'm going to replace this with a 3 saddle, adjustable compensation bridge for this build. After that I will probably go back to modern style bridges. There is a reason for the evolution.

I gave this 2 stars since the overall bridge quality is fine and maybe it will work for you.

Go with a modern tele bridge with 6 saddles if you have intonation concerns.
This bridge does not apply even pressure across the saddle so they tend to turn and not sit on both adjustment screws.
Cheap for a reason- you can do better.

Direct Squier replacement

I just wanted to say that this is a direct replacement for a 2013 Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline. Everything lined up perfectly with no soldering or tweaking required. It's a really great guitar made better by being able to set the intonation!

Precision at last

This bridge replaced the 3 piece stock bridge. Now each string can be tuned perfectly instead of compromising between two. Simple installation...only a screwdriver is required. Highly recommended.

6 better than 3

My "Beijing Tele" mod project prompted me to change out the 3 saddle bridge for the 6. I like being able to intonate each separately. Perfect fit, wood screw holes all lined up, same with pickup screws.

1970s-style with 6 saddles. Installed and set-up easily. Intonates accurately.
