Love almost everything..

Works great, easy to install, excellent quality, adjustments all work very well. My only complaint is the saddle height screws are too long. They stick up above the saddle way too far to be comfortable. I've tried to find shorter ones, but the threads don't match on any of the replacements I've tried.

Excellent Bridge.

I built a HH telecaster recently and wanted a big brass bridge instead of the small vintage ones that are normally on Fenders. This one is excellent. Bridge and saddles are top quality. Lots of room to for intonation. Good Stuff.

Works great, looks great!

I got a gold one for a custom guitar I was building. Worked beautifully and was super easy to install. I only give it 4 stars because I didn't use the saddles, but replaced them with Ghost saddles. Made it a bit expensive for a metal plate...

Great bridge

Use these on my Tele builds when installing hum-buckers in the bridge. Easy to install and intonate correctly. Simple, functional and completely adjustable, perfect for my custom Tele projects. Will work with any neck radius too!

Gotoh Hardtail Bridge

These bridges are always true. Eazy to adjust intonation and string height. And if you follow Stew-Mac's guide to placement you can't go wrong. I've used these bridges on many of the guitars I've built and never had a problem with them.

Works great!

Easy to put on, easy to adjust, everything is deburred so it doesn't cut into your hand like some of the Fender bridges.

Nice Bridge!

Installed one of the chrome bridges on my newest build, great quality and looks good too. It's comfortable to rest your hand on, no sharp or irritating edges and all the intonation screws operate smoothly as well as the saddle height screws. It's heavy and solid and has great sustain, especially on my neck through guitar. I've used the cheaper hardtail bridges from another company and the quality difference is very obvious. I will use these again!
