Squier Telecaster Humbucker Bridge with Modern Saddles

If you're looking to upgrade your Squier Telecaster Humbucker Bridge then you're in the right place! With a solid steel base plate, modern saddles, and string thru loading, this versatile bit of kit is the perfect upgrade for your Squier guitar.

Steel Base Plate

Made from steel, this bridge offers fantastic durability and reliable performance from the off. The humbucker shaped space will fit the vast majority of humbucker equipped Squier Telecasters, but be sure to check the images for exact dimensions if you're unsure. It comes supplied with colour matched screws and is bolted to the body via three screw mounts. This secure mounting promotes the transfer of string vibration to the body, delivering a fuller guitar tone

Modern Saddles

A lot players prefer the modern-style 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.

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 whether you prefer string thru or top loading, as both will sound equally great, just different.

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 lower cost components, which is why they are able to be sold so cheap. When you change a few key components like your bridge and pickups, you can vastly improve the sound and playability of your Squier Tele.
