Compensated Bridge Saddles for Tele, Set of 3

About This Item

A set that retains the vintage look and tone, but helps improve traditional 3-saddle Tele guitar bridge intonation.

Each saddle is angled for better string length compensation.

Vintage-style polished unplated brass, with chrome height screws, springs and intonation screws. Similar to the saddles installed on the Danny Gatton signature series Tele guitar.

Near perfect intonation

By

Verified Buyer


Unbelievable. I replaced an original set of saddles on my 1966 Tele with these beauties. I took a picture of the originals before I removed them to be able to put the newbies in the same place. To my amazement when I tuned up the new strings and saddles, I had perfect intonation except for I think the A or G being a very, very slight sharp. If you love Tele's, these will change your life!

Nice Compensated Telecaster Saddles

Finaly got around to replacing my old saddles with these StewMac Compensated saddles. Good quality, easy to install and when finished they helped put my Telecaster in to much better tune. Good stuff!

I have used these on approx. 8 Tele's. They do the job and add more confidence to the tuning. But, the hole angle is greater or lesser on some of these saddles, though it's close enough. Probably a drill jig for accurate repeatability of the hole angle is the answer.

very happy with these saddles

So glad that StewMac had what I needed for my Telecaster copy and could send it so quickly. These fit up easily and are much better than the hardware that came with the original bridge (sharp and not easily adjusted). Thanks StewMac!

Ordered these instead of using cheap uncompensated ones on my Junglecaster Tele-copy. Made a big difference in the tone.

I BOUGHT 2 SETS OF THESE, I HAVE USED THE NOTCHED STYLE IN THE PAST, THESE SLANTED INTONATE AND SOUND BETTER BY FAR!
BOTH GUITARS I PUT ON TUNE AND FEEL GREAT! EASY INSTALL, ALL THREE SADDLES APPEAR TO BE EXACTLY THE SAME, YOU MAY HAVE TO FLIP THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT SCREWS FOR THE MIDDLE ONE TO REVERSE THE ANGLE, THEN YOUR SET!
