A Genius Piece of work!
A Tele sized bridge plate made of solid steel- fits ALL correct four hole vintage Tele routs and fits fenders exact four mounting holes.
Look- we designed this to use with our Xtrem TM vibrato bridge, but we include six string holes- so you can use it by itself for INCREDIBLE tone and sustain and a fatter, rounder sound than the stamped steel fender bridge.
Now listen carefully- In order to use this you MUST adjust your guitar so that you have a positive- 2.5 to 3 degree- neck angle. On some guitars this adjustment is easily done with an allen wrench- but on MOST you must SHIM the neck. We use business cards or sandpaper- some guys like old guitar picks or thin maple veneer- lots of ways to do it.
Your standard Tele bridge has an average height of 1/2"- This bridge sits about 9/16" average height. The bridge uses four grubscrews so you can easily adjust intonation- and once screwed down the bridge is firmly LOCKED to the bridgeplate.
You get the bridgeplate, tuenomatic roller bridge DESIGNED BY US- gibson style, fender spaced, with radius built in. The bridge sits on threaded studs and in the very unlikely event that you need MORE bridge height, you can install the standard ABR-1 thumbwheels.
