Kluson Contemporary Replacement Bridge For Fender Telecaster With Brass Or Steel Saddles
Kluson® Contemporary Replacement Bridge For Fender Telecaster® With Brass Or Steel Saddles
Kluson®'s contemporary replacement Telecaster® bridge drops right on to any traditional vintage specification Telecaster® converting it to an adjustable 6 brass or steel saddle intonatable bridge. This bridge takes away the need for compensated saddles. Installation on a vintage specification Telecaster® is as simple as removing the strings and original bridge, relocating the pickup to the new bridge, and installing the new bridge in the same location. Once you've set your intonation you will have all the adjustability common to other instruments without the frustration of losing proper tuning higher up on the neck. Available in Chrome, Nickel, Gold and Black plating options with plated saddles to match. This bridge mounts with 4 screws and will not work for the American Standard series guitars
- String spacing : 27/64 in. (10.8mm)
- E to E string spacing : 2 1/8 in. (54mm)
- 1.5mm allen wrench included
- Plate material = brass
I purchased this bridge to replace the "vintage" brass barrel style on my Fender American Special Telecaster. The four attachment screw holes aligned with the existing holes in my Tele perfectly. I had to enlarge the 4 holes in the Kluson bridge approximately .002" for the original bridge screws to fit through them without forcing them through, which I probably could have managed to do if I didn't have an appropriately sized bit. The chrome finish is high quality and the the saddles are high quality also, allowing for excellent intonation. The fit, finish and close tolerances of the saddles and adjustment screws make this bridge a strong candidate if you are thinking about replacing the bridge on your Telecaster. This is a much nicer bridge than the OEM (Fender) replacement bridge. I'm glad I spent the extra twenty five bucks to purchase this bridge instead. I'm going to buy another one for my MIM Telecaster also. You get what you pay for.
Highly recommended for good intonation.
