A true Custom touch for your prized Telecaster. Split Telecaster® / Esquire® Vintage '52 Type Chrome "Pat.Pend." Bridge Plate with a set of Custom Fitted "Angle Compensated" Solid Brass Saddles. I start with a Standard RH Fender 50's Style “Pat.Pend.” Chrome Bridge Plate that fits all Vintage 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and on up to current Reissues, MIJ, CIJ, MIM, MIK, Squier Classic Vibe’s, Highway One's, Deluxe Nashville’s, Classic Player Baja’s and the new American Special’s, with (4) mounting screw holes and "Strings thru Body". NOTE: Does not fit the American Standard or American Deluxe. This Bridge is also a perfect fit on the Peavey Omniac. 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 Bridge Plate has been SPLIT into (2) pieces, separating the “Saddle Section” from the “Tone Ring” (where the Pickup mounts). The two facing ends, where the Plate is cut, get rounded off and polished, to match the rest of the original Finish. I then add (4) mounting holes in the “Tone Ring” section for mounting to the guitar body. When properly installed, the two sections DO NOT contact each other. This Bridge maintains the general “Look” of the standard Tele® Bridge, but un-couples the “Tone Ring” section from the Saddles, for a little less “Twang”. This style of Bridge also makes it a lot easier to swap-out Pickups (for the experimenter). 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 (Physical or Sonic).
