I bought these to replace some stainless saddles. The new saddles warmed up the tone of a bright Tele, and the finish and construction are top notch.
Great replacement saddles!
Just installed these on my Telecaster Blacktop HH to replace the stamped metal saddles that it came with. I like these a lot, though I do have a few nitpicks that keep me from giving them a 5-star rating.
The springs are good quality metal, but they are cylindrical. So if you use any low tunings you may have to remove them or replace them with conical springs.
The intonation screws are quite long, so again, if you tune low you'll have to replace or modify them so as not to pinch the strings when you set intonation.
The height set screws have smooth action, but are generally too long for a low action (2/32" at the 12th fret). There were two saddles that came with shorter screws, so I used these on the first and sixth strings, but with the radius, all of them had at least a 1/16" above surface.
And finally, while I like the chrome fine, it would be nice if these where offered in brushed steel like the American Standard models. Though, I will admit that the surfaces was smooth and mirror finished.
A nice product, just not perfect.
The saddles were perfect replacements for the originals; exact replicas. Stewart-MacDonald is an exceptional company to do business with. Tech people know their stuff (rare now days)and product arrived in 2 days. Outstanding!
These are a nice solid replacement. I bought several sets to keep in stock to replace old pitted saddles. A perfect fit for my old T-60's!
Very high quality saddles. I did have to return them for another set, as I did not order correctly. I was impressed by the item quality, and also with the willingness of Stewmac to provide a refund. The replacement saddles were of high quality also!
