Joe Barden Vintage Style Tele Bridge
This Joe Barden Vintage Tele bridge solves all of the structural problems and intonation issues inherent in original vintage Tele bridges.
The heavily plated bridge plate is made of the same material as the original, but slightly thicker, making the plate less prone to unwanted squeal. Using the originally spec'd material insures that the vintage tone and slightly microphonic nature of your Telecaster will not be lost. In addition, it features a Danny Gatton-inspired "scoop" at the front of the treble sidewall, a tremendous aid to fingerpickers who find themselves constantly hitting the plate while playing. The three brass saddles are tilt-compensated for intonation.
The Joe Barden Vintage Tele bridge has two additional mounting holes at the front edge to provide secure fastening at all four corners, if desired (use of these mounting holes is optional). All in all, this bridge is a great upgrade that will not require modifications to your guitar.
