Short Bridge for Tele

Vintage style Tele® bridge, in a lopped-off size. Lets you put any pickup you like in the bridge position while keeping the traditional Tele three-saddle design.

"I've been cutting off Tele bridges for years to achieve this. Ever since I saw this mod on a '59 Telecaster that Seymour Duncan outfitted with humbuckers for Jeff Beck. It's cool to see this available as a factory piece!"
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor
