Kluson introduces the new US made vintage Tele bridge specifically designed for Telecasters with vintage bridge specification requirements. This superior quality bridge has a stamped steel baseplate with brass saddles just like the originals but with higher quality finish work and is available in multiple plating types for the look you desire and performance you require.
The Enhanced Vintage saddles to me is our best design. It maintains the vintage look while eliminating the problem of the string moving on the saddle and altering string spacing. If you are using string benders, it is the saddle I would suggest and I would recommend the stainless steel saddle. Just like our original saddle it will give perfect intonation.
All our saddles are hand polished and buffed to insure they are free of burrs that can cut strings.
I was unhappy with the saddles I could purchase so we have been making them in-house. I have tried to eliminate all the problems with traditional saddles. They are angled for correct intonation, the screws are shorter to keep them from cutting your hands, and there is maximum room for the string to go across the saddle without coming in contact with the height adjustment screw hole. You can now get an even string spacing without interference. Our saddles are highly polished to eliminate any burrs or knicks. Includes allen wrench.
This item is being sold as B-Stock due to slight cosmetic blemishes, it is 100% in working condition!
This bridge will do for a Tele what our strat bridge does for strats. It will increase sustain, volume, and eliminate unwanted feedback problems associated with the standard vintage Fender bridge. Most bridges are made from .045 - .050 inch thick 1010 steel that is soft and easy to form into the "tray shape". Those bridges have poor sustain and tend to cause feedback problems. Some use brass castings for their saddles.
Callaham's bridge is made from .075 inch thick 1018 specially treated steel. This gives the plate an 80% increase in rigidity and dramatically improves sustain, volume, and note separation. It eliminates unwanted feedback. There is a noticeable increase in bass response and a taming of harsh high end. The first 3/4 inch of the front lip is removed to allow for best right hand picking. Coupled with our machined compensated saddles makes this bridge the best available for any vintage styled Tele.
