What a difference

By

Verified Buyer


Just installed this bridge on a Fender Baja Telecaster, replacing the original 3 saddle bridge. Before I even plugged in the guitar to my amp, I could already hear a huge difference in tone and sustain and overall clarity. Highly recommended for any MIM Telecaster. Easy installation.

Really nice bridge upgrade

I've bought a few of these for my builds. Excellent, heavy brass baseplate, saddles make for perfect intonation. Well machined, no sharp edges, nice plating.

Improved tone

My cheap Tele knockoff had intonation problems with a 3 saddle bridge. This 6 saddle replacement not only solved the intonation problem, the tone is much clearer and brighter, with more sustain.

Excellent upgrade

This replaced the bridge on my G&L ASAT Classic, and it's a lot more pleasant to play now. Palm muting is a lot easier, and I prefer the feel of the smoother saddles. Installation was a breeze, but I did need to lower the saddles quite a bit. Luckily, I already had the proper allen wrench but agree with others that one should be included.

major upgrade

By

Verified Buyer


I install these for folks with the old Teles with only 3 bridge saddles. Everything about this bridge is an upgrade - better tone and sustain as well as the biggie - perfect intonation. My only complaint (as with everybody's version) is that the mounting screws are in the way of the saddle feet. Due to the location, which is necessary to retrofit from the old bridge, some of the adjusting screws or 'feet' end up sitting on or partially on the big screw heads. A cooler design might be to countersink the heads a little more and use a thin metal flush cover for the screws if anyone wanted to work on that design...

Fits great, looks amazing

I bought this to replace the stock bridge on my Squier Tele Classic Vibe 50s because I wanted to upgrade from 3 saddles to 6. This bridge is hefty and solid, has a beautiful chrome finish, and fits perfectly (where Fender bridges do not necessarily fit Squires).

It's expensive, but I think it was worth the money.

Great upgrade

This bridge is made very well. It offers far more adjustment than the older style.

This Gotoh replacement Telecaster Bridge may not have that "Vintage" look but who cares? It's 2019 and to me proper intonation, increased sustained, and increased tone plus a way way more comfortable bridge for palm muting. I installed this bridge on my Fender Telecaster and now my Tele sounds so much better. Highly recommended.

Replacement Player Tele/ Few items to note

By

Verified Buyer


I purchase this to replace a bridge on a used MIM Player Telecaster I bought in June of 2019. I don't usually write reviews but thought may be someone can benefit from my experience. First, positive items is that all the holes matched up and fit with pick guard. The bridge plate is also slightly thicker than the stock bridge.
I had purchased the bridge with hopes of gaining a slight increase in space between the fret board edge and strings. The difference was negligible enough that I did not pursue any changes to nut. I would not recommend purchasing as solution for this on a Player Telecaster.
Next, even though the plate was thicker, the saddles seemed lighter than the stock saddles. The item that surprised me was the mounting screws seemed very cheap. As seen mentioned in other reviews, they plating came off very easily and the metal seemed softer on screw head. Softer than what I am used too. Also as seen mentioned, the screws did not seem to seat as flush with the plate as the stock mounting screws. May want to reuse stock screws if mounting this bridge.
Last item: I read about the adjustment screws varying in length and being rough. I thought they can't be that bad. While I didn't have any too short, they did vary in length. Most were over sized in length and my had does catch on them. I will be filing them down. Overall, IMHO the stock fender bridge is better quality. Bridge functions fine and is ok, it just didn't fix what I had bought it for.
