Telecaster Bridge!!

Post  Tom E. on Sat May 12, 2012 3:48 pm

Hey guys,

I want to know if there's any ''telecaster'' guitar player right here!?

I have a LsL T-Bone and I'm looking to change my 3-saddles Tele guitar bridge for some compensated bridge saddles to keep it ''traditional'' and have better intonation!!

What are you thinking of it!?

If you have anysuggestions of any advices please let me know before I make the move!!

Thanks

On my traditional 52' relic tele and my sugerpine tele I have compensated Rutters 3 barrel saddles. Rutters uses an original brass metal that is much more dense than whats out on the market right now, and as well is using an aircraft grade stainless steel for the other saddles. as you can see he has craftily hid the compensation well

Tom, on the daphne blue sugarpine tele I had with a tvjones powertron in it, I needed the Aluminum E/A with the two
other brass saddles. It kept the clarity balanced across all 6 strings on that instrument.. I believe it had
much to do with the nature of the powertron in a plank guitar.

No need for the brighter aluminum unless you want a bit more ping from the Low E and A

well, he's not wrong. you'll just have a little less fatness
in the lows, and more thunk.

But... I'm trying to say your tone will be VASTLY improved or you will hear your guitar wood so much
better with his complete bridges... pickle jar lids should be tossed away in his words Smile

What's the difference between the aluminum and the steel one when we talk about ''sound'' !?

Steel is gonna have more sustain and a bit more definition to the low strings, the unwound strings
have more clarity. Guitar growls more when you grab a chord with a bit of overdrive. more modern sounding.

Aluminum obviously is lighter and creates more resonance from the wood, more thunk and jangle than the steel. high
strings have a bit more ping to them.

Both are an improvement from the rather thin stamped steel bridge IF your ears are used to the sound of a gretsch.
