It's a winner for sure.

Great Intonation

By

Verified Buyer


Couldn’t get stock bridge to intonate. The Gotoh fixed that problem. Only negative thing I could say is that I wish I could mount the ashtray on it. BUT, I knew when I ordered it that it wouldn’t. Correct intonation was more important to me

just one tiny thing

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this bridge for a project guitar. It is just what I wanted. The one tiny thing was that one height adjustment screw was only half as long as all the others...fortunately I have a replacement.

Non-Specific StewMac review

By

Verified Buyer


I recently ordered various parts for a Tele kit I'm building and just want to report on how StewMac consistently provides a great experience. You offer a wide array of high quality components, descriptions are good, videos are very useful, ordering is easy, shipping is incredibly fast. I never have to second-guess what I bought or complain about or return anything. Hats off. I'm a customer for life.

Excellent bridge for modern Telecaster !

By

Verified Buyer


I've been using this Gotoh modern Telecaster bridge on my guitars for over twenty years.
This bridge fits American sized Telecasters perfectly. I have had problems with some imports.
Not all. Just the bad ones! On bodies supplied by Stewmac, or Clearforks, or Warmoth, Fender,
Etc. Perfect ! The plating on this bridge is excellent. Also the bridge and saddles are made of
brass. Nice, thick, non-magnetic, brass. I have found that Gold plating, (especially on imports)
Rubs off very quickly. I have Teles that I built 20 years ago, used this bridge, and the plating is
still almost perfect. Good durable bridge. JW

Amazing results

By

Verified Buyer


Put a hot mini humbucker in my offset Tele and could not get the pickup height adjusted without microphonic issues. The bridge was the vintage stamped steel type that worked great with the stock single coil. Had a notion that a non ferrous bridge might help and I wanted a bit more mass in the bridge. I installed the Gotoh bridge and was stunned at the results. The pickup is now happy at any height and the bridge added warmth to the overall sound of the guitar. This was the best upgrade I could do. Hardware is beautifully made, installed perfect. StewMac had it in my hands in 2 days flat. 5 thumbs up..

Perfect fit!

By

Verified Buyer


Replaced the original on my American Std Telecaster. Perfect fit and the finish is much nicer than the original. Some things to be aware of: Find a good YouTube or web article on the set-up for your guitar, as there will be adjustments for the pickup (once you fit into this new piece in addition to the string height, arc, and tone. Not hard, not long, but it all needs to be done.

Screws not flush, but still better than stock bridge

By

Verified Buyer


This bridge fit my tele perfectly. I eventually got it to sound great too. But like some other reviews, the screw heads under the bridge saddles do not sit flush. What the reviews didn't say was that the saddle has to be set higher than Fender recommends to prevent the saddle from buzzing against the screw head. Fortunately this height is not a big deal, but you should be getting screws that sit flush with the plate. I bought it to get the intonation right, and that was easy to get perfect. It sounds a little thinner than with the brass saddles, but still sounds great. I also like the fact the plate is flat without sides.

Disappointed

By

Verified Buyer


The actual bridge was okay, though the height screws are a little rough and I'll have to file them off. The screws holding the actual bridge in place are really bad, though. Out of the box, one was the wrong size, but I figure I'll make due. The chrome is very easily scratched by the set screws. Just in doing some basic placement, I got scratches. Then when I was trying to attach the bridge, two different screws twisted off using a hand-powered screwdriver. I've had good luck with gotoh components before, but this was very disappointing overall.
