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.

Excelent!

It fits the routing of my Tele body. Nice bolts and nice metal. You just need to put some wax to prevent the screws that adjust the height of the saddles to unscrew or move, no biggie. Looks good and feels good, no sharp edges and vintage feeling.
