Telecaster Compatible Bridge with Vintage Saddles

Want modern performance but a vintage aesthetic from your Squier Tele bridge? Well this is the one for you then! With its individual saddles that still retain a vintage look, you can have all the benefits of a modern bridges intonation with a classic look thanks to this great bit of kit.

Individual Saddles

A lot players prefer individual saddles because it gives you greater control over the intonation of the guitar. Unlike the traditional Tele bridge, you have completely individual saddles which lets you set intonation without making any compromises.

Dual Loading Bridge Design

This bridge is dual loading, so you can have your strings as top loading or string thru. There are various reasons you might choose either, so having both as an option is a pretty good deal!

String Thru

When using a string thru bridge, you'll have increased tension versus that of a top loading bridge, which some players prefer as it gives you a more stable playing platform, particularly when you're plucking with your fingers. It really comes down to personal preference which you prefer, as both will sound equally great, just different.

Top Loading

When top loading, the strings are top mounted to the back of the bridge, which means a slightly lesser string tension than that of a through body. This will make the guitar sound more resonant and lively, which some players prefer over string-thru style bridges.

Tele Bridge Design

The Telecaster bridge design is unique because it also acts as a mount for the bridge pickup. Most likely influenced by the design of lap steel guitars, the baseplate inreases the magnetic force of the Alnico slugs on the pickups, upping the magnetic strength and making the pickups more powerful. This sonic side effect is what gives Tele pickups their cutting sound.

Squier Telecaster Bridge Upgrade

Squier guitars are often made with the low cost materials, which is why they are able to be provided so cheap. Upgrading a few key components like your bridge and pickups can have a transformative effect on a Squier Telecaster allowing it to punch well above it's weight in terms of price and tone.
