Perfect Intonation

Bought a Tele style gtr with ‘compensated’ saddles. Close but not good enough. These saddles pivot to get intonation perfect.

This bridge dropped right on to my 2017 telecaster. It looks great and sounds great too. All the adjustments worked good and were easy to do.

Bought this along with some other parts for the Tele-pretender kit I’m building. This bridge is a good step up from, what did someone else say, “Pacific Rim stuff”. I’m not knocking the kit, really, for the price point you get a good place to start from. This bridge makes sense in its design, looking forward to seeing how it works out once the telekit is done. The stamped bridge plate fits the routing on the body very nicely, although I do not know about the fit on a real Fender body, as I am not working with one.

Great Vintage Style Telecaster Bridge

The moment I installed this on my MIM Telecaster it came alive. Wonderful, punchy old Fender Tele sound and feel and excellent intonation once the adjustable saddles were adjusted for intonation. This bridge has made a huge difference (along with an upgrade on the pickups) on a guitar that was oriiginally fair to middling and now is a genuinely excellent Telecaster. I can't imagine a better bridge for anyone looking for good intonation with a real vintage vibe.

Excellent Tele bridge

Very nice design that allows you to fine tune your intonation and the brass saddles keep your tone bright and sustainful.

I bought this bridge to replace the 6 saddle bridge on a custom Broadcaster type guitar that I own. The hex screws on the old bridge were backing out as I played and I would have to stop playing about every 15 minutes to adjust them and then occasionally I would have to do a complete setup to fix the issue temporarily. This Wilkinson bridge was a breeze to install and setup. It only took me about 30 minutes to do a hight setup and intonation which for me is a record. I like the locking feature for intonation as well. So far after several hours of playing the piece seems rock solid and nice.

I like it. '69 style tele mutt with Joe Bardens, (9 to 42 strings) deserved to have the intonation issue fixed. I just swapped the bridge barrels and the screws, saving the plate for future projects. Intonation now isn't exact, but a compromise between two strings and is within a couple of cents and I wiggle more than that when fretting so this is now close enough not to bother me at all any more.Maybe with more effort I could get it spot on, but I'm happy now. I never did figure out the old screw bending, anyway. Tone is just what you expect a three brass barrel tele to be. Spanky with quick decay. Nice,easy to do fix.
