This is The Cadillac of Fender Tele Bridges. A true Custom touch for your prized Telecaster without any modification. Genuine Fender®. Telecaster® / Esquire® Chrome Highway One Bridge Plate with Hybrid Double Flange Notches and a set of Custom Fitted "Angle Compensated" Solid Brass Saddles. This is a New Fender Vintage Style "Highway One" Bridge Plate that fits all Vintage & Classic 50’s,60's, 70's, 80's and on up to current Reissues, MIM, CIJ, MIK, MIJ, Squier Classic Vibe’s, Highway One's®, Deluxe Nashville’s, Classic Player Baja’s and the new American Special, with (4) mounting screw holes and "Strings thru Body". NOTE: Does not fit the American Standard or American Deluxe. The Screw Spread Dimension is 2-9/16" center to center to the (2) outer-most holes. The String Spread Dimension is the Standard 2-1/8 inches "E" to "E". The Highway One Bridge Plates are, by far, the BEST Looking Fender Tele Plates available. They are much thicker and heavier than Standard Vintage Style Plates and the Highly Polished Chrome Finish is much better overall. The metal is .009" Thicker and the weight is almost 30% greater than a typical '52 Bridge Plate. This extra mass results in a little more bottom end, and a more Balanced Tone for your Tele. The Bridge Plate is modified by "Notching" the Upper and Lower Flanges for right hand picking clearance near the Bridge Pickup. This Mod eliminates the parts of the bridge that you've been catching your pick on, or banging your knuckles on, but keeps as much of the "Tone Ring" as possible to maintain that Tele® sound. The Notched-Areas are then polished mirror smooth to match the rest of the bridge plate. I then add a set of Custom Fitted 3-pc. "Angle Compensated" Premium Smooth Brass Saddles. These Saddles have the intonation screw drilled at a slight angle. They allow proper intonation of your Tele's® vintage style three saddle bridge by angling the saddles and establishing the proper string length on all six strings. This is not possible with a stock set of "Straight" Saddles because most often you would need to adjust the saddle to a point halfway between the two perfect settings for each of the strings on that saddle. With the "Angle Compensated" Saddles, that Compromise is minimized or not necessary at all. The center saddle of this set is then Custom Ground so the string elevations can match your Fretboard Radius and the proper angle is ground on the ends so these saddles fit beside each other better with minimal interference (see photo). These saddles offer a True Vintage Look and Sound with the appeal of Dramatically improved intonation.
