At last, a 3-saddle bridge that can be adjusted to play in tune! A locking pivot screw in the center of each saddle allows perfect adjustment of string intonation.

This traditional chrome stamped-steel bridge fits a standard Tele® pickup, and is designed for string mounting through the guitar body (use our Guitar String Ferrules). The unplated brass saddles have Allen-adjustable height and 2-5/32" (54.77mm) string spread. Mounting screws are included. Chrome.

Very pleased

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this bridge to replace the 6 saddle bridge on a custom Broadcaster type guitar that I own. The hex screws on the old bridge were backing out as I played and I would have to stop playing about every 15 minutes to adjust them and then occasionally I would have to do a complete setup to fix the issue temporarily. This Wilkinson bridge was a breeze to install and setup. It only took me about 30 minutes to do a hight setup and intonation which for me is a record. I like the locking feature for intonation as well. So far after several hours of playing the piece seems rock solid and nice.

Compensated tele bridge

(Customer's Reviews)

I like it. '69 style tele mutt with Joe Bardens, (9 to 42 strings) deserved to have the intonation issue fixed. I just swapped the bridge barrels and the screws, saving the plate for future projects. Intonation now isn't exact, but a compromise between two strings and is within a couple of cents and I wiggle more than that when fretting so this is now close enough not to bother me at all any more.Maybe with more effort I could get it spot on, but I'm happy now. I never did figure out the old screw bending, anyway. Tone is just what you expect a three brass barrel tele to be. Spanky with quick decay. Nice,easy to do fix.
