I wanted to be able to intonate each string since the original Tele bridge did not allow this. The quality of the Gotoh bridge replacement produced an immediate sound improvement over the underperforming original in my Tele and I am very happier with the improved intonation. Often when one replaces items the difference can be subtle or difficult to notice. The improvement with the Gotoh was immediately noticable upon playing after installing and setting up the Gotoh bridge.
So when I bought my American Special Tele I fell in love with it but I didn't care at all about the vintage ash tray 3 saddle bridge. It was a pain to intonate and wasn't as twangy as I wanted. I replaced it in literally less than 5 minutes with the Gotoh modern bridge. Now after setting action and intonation this thing is seriously super twangy. That bridge with texas special pups and an action so low the neck had to be shimmed helps me achieve the whole Hendrix Page Paisley tone through a Marshall DSL100H. Long review but if you're thinking about buying this then do it. You won't regret it.
Great product. Wish it would have come with a 20 cent allen wrench. Took me two days to track one down that would fit.
Purchased this bridge for my current custom Tele build. Have used vintage 3 saddle bridges on previous Tele builds and wanted to try the Gotoh 6 saddle bridge this time around and compare. I was pleasantly surprised in not only the quality of the bridge, but also in the ease of intonation and in remaining in tune. Was somewhat apprehensive in possible Tele tonal loss, but found the tone to remain extremely close to the same as with standard Tele 3 saddle bridges. if anything the tone was a slight bit warmer which I liked. I would HIGHLY recommend the Gotoh Modern Tele Bridge.
Excellent quality and price! I will be putting this on the next 3 Telecasters I am building. Great service and fast delivery.
Awesome tele bridge and the best price available anywhere!
Once again another high quality part from StewMac. The tone improvement was remarkable.
Has been my favorite bridge to use. Just putting a new tele together and had a screw break off in the body on me! Had to go through the hair pulling, etc, to get broken screw out and plug body. I would not recommend using the screws that come with this bridge. Save yourself a headache and get better mounting screws
As allways my order arrived with no setbacks.
I swapped a traditional ashtray bridge with this, massive improvement on both tone and sustain. Smooth as ever to play too! Thank you Stewmac!
This is a quality piece of hardware, nothing cheap or lazy about the production quality. Heavy and solid. You won't be disappointed.
