    1. Well designed Tele Saddle 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jan 6, 2018

      I have purchased both Steel and Brass 5/16 Tele Saddles and am very satisfied. I know some who want vintage everything nay not appreciate the appearance but for me its about tone and functionality. The saddles are well finished with no burrs or sharp edges. They intonate very well, remember that 3 Tele saddles by design cannot intonate perfectly. The set screws are rounded on bottom so you wont get grabbing or digging as you try to adjust. They also include short and long set screws. I believe it's a better for contact situation to the bridge plate also. The intonating screws are 6-32 thread. Some gutar bridges may require longer, but that s an easy find at Lowes. Now after trying multiple brass saddles I like the rounded smoothe groove the strings lay in much better than a sharper edge or no groove. The design solved some of the tuning issues created by the string hang ups over a sharp break angle or moving around in the case of no groove. Too sharp a vee tends to dampen or grab the string but the rounded groove on these saddles seem to locate the string accurately without causing hang ups or vibration loss. The steel adds a acoustical tone with some jangly overtones and the brass has a even chime with less bright overtones. I like them both, you have to fit the personality of the instrument. I consider this product a good find, reasonably priced and they ship quick.

    2. Good quality, well made 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Nov 6, 2017

      I bought these to use with a Bigsby. Very nice polish and weight. The shorter set of adjustment screws and rounded bottoms to prevent scratching the bridge plate are a nice touch. They sound good. Not much to complain about!
