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.

I used these on a restoration of an old tele copy. The difference in tone was substancial (replacing the old nickel ones). Plus ya just can't beat the brass look on an old tele. Customer was very happy. Guitar intonated easily. Highly recommended.

Why didn't Fender do this?

Just installed a set on a Classic Vibe Tele & the intonation is pretty much perfect. I added grooves to stop the strings slipping sideways but otherwise a 5 star product!

A good upgrade for a Telecaster style bridge. The ones that come with the saddles were too short for my project. Thankfully, the screws for the original saddles had the same thread. In fairness, the bridge I put them on was a cheap copy though. For sound and intonation, no Telecaster should be without these.

I couldn't believe how much better my tele sounded after this simple, inexpensive upgrade. Highly recommended.

Tele is closer to proper intonation than it's been since I've owned it. The reason these compensated brass barrel saddles. Great price great product!

Works well

This helped a lot in resolving intonation issues. While not perfect as strings as grouped, it goes along way to help. It is very fairly priced. I put this on all my teles

Great Saddles

This is my 2nd set of these saddles. They are a must have if you want to intonate your Tele right. I bought a set off the internet and they were junk. I will only buy mine from StewMac!

Longer sustain and clearer sound

Compensated Bridge Saddles... what more can I say, I let my telecaster do the talking. I must admit before I changed to these saddles I had a distinctive sound with my old saddles (Chrome Saddles). However in saying that, my new saddles are perfect and now I can add to the sound I use to have. I never have problems with setting my harmonics either. If your after a twang and longer sustain and most of all that distinctive tele sound... these are the saddles to get. Thanks Team.

Great price/performance

They intonate better than stock Tele brass barrel saddles. Installation is simple, and they sound exactly like they should. Seem to be made to a very high standard of workmanship. They cost less than half of the boutique saddles, but perform just as well (or in some cases better).
