Gotoh In-Tune Relic Bridge for Tele

About This Item

Looks old but plays in tune!
The problem with vintage Tele® saddles is that they weren't designed for accurate intonation. Gotoh's compensated saddles have solved this problem without changing the look of this classic bridge.

Built-in compensation
Gotoh's In-Tune saddles have unique grooves molded into them which move each string's point of contact for more exact intonation than traditional barrel saddles.

This bridge features a stamped steel baseplate and is designed for string mounting through the body. Adjust the saddle height with a 1.5mm Allen wrench.

String spread 2-1/8" (53.97mm)
Baseplate dimensions 3-5/16" x 3" (84.14mm x 76.20mm)

Stamped-steel baseplate and brass saddles with relic-chrome finish. Mounting screws included.

Installation note: Replacing a modern Fender American Standard Tele bridge with a Traditional Bridge for Tele will require additional drilling.

Nice looking & sounding bridge upgrade

By

Verified Buyer


Not only does this bridge look authentic & cool, it also has nice tone due to the brass barrel saddles. If you replace a stock fender bridge assembly, you may have re-drill the anchor screw holes. The intonation adjustment screws can easily strip. The angle of the connection to the barrel saddles increases the tension on the screw as you adjust them backwards, so take care when intonation. Otherwise this is a really good deal on a great sounding and cool looking bridge assembly.

Great bridge but used cheap parts

Fixed my intonation issues but the saddle adjustment screws are very poor quality. One stripped out almost immediately (fortunately the intonation wasn’t too far off) and the other two screws are about to be completely stripped out as well.

On the plus side it sounds really great. I have no buzz due to the bridge and the string spacing is good.

Just really disappointed in the quality of the screws. If it weren’t for the cheap screws I would’ve given it five stars.

Great upgrade!

Bought this to upgrade the FSR Ash Tele bridge because of intonation issues and palm bleeding due to the high screws sticking out. This one fits perfectly and its probably the best and only upgrade I will need for this guitar. Thanks

Gets the job done.

This one fit perfectly in my Fender MIM Deluxe Nashville Tele. The intonation is great, the sustain problem I was having on the high-E on the old bridge seems to be gone. Looks great, sounds great.

Great relic line!

I bought this along with other telecaster relic parts and they are all fantastic! Building a Barncaster and it's looking awesome! Can't wait to finish and start the next. I used to age parts with acid over a three day period - now instantaneous and actually "cleaner!" Great job!

Cheap intonation adjustment screws. Too much space between saddles.

By

This bridge is OK.
Intonation is very good.
Tone is about right for an ashtray bridge.

But...
The intonation adjustment screws are crap and are almost completely stripped at the head (Philips-head) after only a few adjustments.
They are also quite hard to turn when the strings are tuned to pitch.
The saddles also have too much side-to-side space between them (not ideal for best tone) and you'll have to be careful to make sure your strings line up with your fretboard and/or your pole pieces.

Frankly, I got better results in the past from the cheaper ashtray tuner Stew-Mac also sells plus the compensated saddles they sell, i.e. a la carte.

Disappointed.

Response from StewMac


We're very sorry to hear the intonation screws stripped out on this bridge and it did not meet your expectations. The saddle spacing on this bridge matches Fender vintage specs. We are sending out replacement intonation screws right away!
