    Brass Compensated Saddles

    Posted by Brian R. on Jan 25, 2024

    I bought these to replace the ones that came on my Fender American Performer Telecaster. The stock saddles were fine but the string spacing was off at times and I would have to fiddle with it. These new saddles are a huge improvement as they are not only compensated they are grooved as well. No more weird string spacing and intonation is dead on too. The tone of my guitar has also improved with these new brass saddles. Very well balanced sound from bass to treble strings with excellent sustain. Comes with required hardware for installation and swapping them out was a breeze. I had fun doing this little upgrade and it paid off big time, very happy with my purchase from Philadelphia Luthier Tools. Super fast order processing and shipping as well. Great buying experience and will not hesitate to order again in the future. Thank you for the awesome saddles. The tele and I are very happy ?

    Compensated Tele Saddles

    The two issues this design focuses on are Intonation and string spacing/ or string drift on the old school style saddles. On the subject of the string spacing or string drift, I would say they nailed it. Even with the saddles set to the proper fingerboard radius, the spring spacing is perfect. Sadly, in the attempt to deal with the intonation/ tuning part, this design failed. Each saddle holds two strings and I could only get one in tune. Not recommended.

    Classic look, intonation solved

    These notched saddles were a perfect upgrade for my MIM Vintera Tele. I’m now able to intonate the guitar, while maintaining the resonance of the original brass.

    Clever design, great material, I was able to improve my guitars intonation. One of the 3 had the wrong screw included but they responded perfectly and rushed me the correct one.

    Outstanding upgrade

    Posted by James O'Driscoll on Mar 9, 2023

    Discovered these after getting a new Harmony, just fitted a set to a Macmull Stinger, exceptional upgrade to a wonderful instrument. Have been a fan of the Gotoh In Tunes for some time, but I will likely replace all those sets with these. Straight string pull (as opposed to those angled compensated sets) along with somewhere for the string to sit in, but retaining the full 5/16 barrel, really impressed. Also the service from Philadelphia Luthier to me in the UK was great.

    Telecaster saddle upgrade

    Clean, smooth, easily installed, and easy to adjust. Intonation is really solid because the compensation is accurate. Highly recommend. Don't even have to take off the strings, just loosen them and work carefully.
