Easy way to better tone.

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

Saved from the parts bin.

My old Partsocaster was headed for parts cannibalization do to horrible intonation. These saddles made it sound wonderful.

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!

Great Product

Installed these on my 62' Reissue and they sound great... the improvement in tone was instant. I was even able to get a near perfect intonation with GHS Eric Johnson 11, 14, 19, 28, 40, 52.

Excellent product

I felt immediate improvement. They are somewhat tricky to setup (you need a really small flat screwdriver) and springs are real pain (very strong), however the final result is great sound. I have them on a 50's Classic Vibe Squier. definitely recommend. It turned out that the intonation is near perfect with 9 gaouge strings.

Compensated Bridge Saddles for Tele

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.
