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.

first i have to say i had problems with shipping but that was not stewmacs fault the USPS apparently doesnt know how to read house sighs ha ha. but stew mac was very helpful at getting me the saddles as fast as possible. i did the bubba mod on my squier affinity tele with these and it turned out great. so much better tone no more saddle rattle that i got from the stock saddles. intonation with a lil playing around is perfect. well worth the money. only thing is with the squier's the screws are a little to short but just go to like busy beaver and get some M3 x 1.5in screws and ur set.

What a difference

Bought these to replace the old nickle non-compensated saddles. They were easy to install and adjust, so nice to not have to compromise on tuning. Maybe it's just me, but the sound seems brighter too.

Bought these StewMac Compensated Bridge Saddles to go on an old generic Tele and i couldn't believe the difference. The pickups had more depth and all around better sound than the steel ones i had on it. These saddles will work on any Tele and they make a Big difference! They are compensated so they intonate fine. Well worth the price. Thanks

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!
