Joe Barden American Standard Tele Bridgeplate and Saddle Kit for Telecasters solves all of the structural problems and intonation issues inherent in the original parts. The heavily plated Bridgeplate 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 ensures that the vintage tone and slightly microphonic nature of your Telecaster will not be lost. In addition, the Bridgeplate features a Danny Gatton-inspired scoop at the front of the treble sidewall, a tremendous aid to fingerpickers who find the sidewall obtrusive. The Bridgeplate has two additional mounting holes at the front edge to provide secure fastening at all four corners. Use of these mounting holes is optional.Which one do I need, the Vintage or American Standard bridgeplate?Two models of the Joe Barden Telecaster bridgeplate are available; Vintage Style (see our SKU# H71205) or American Standard Style. The two bridgeplates are NOT interchangable and selection of which one to use is dependent on where the mounting and string thru holes are on your particular instrument.Both Joe Barden bridgeplates have 4 mounting holes at the rear. On the American Standard bridgeplate, just IN FRONT of the 4 mouting holes are 6 string-thru holes where the strings come thru the body. In contrast, on the Vintage bridgeplate the string-thru holes are just BEHIND the 4 mounting holes and closest to the rear wall of the bridgeplate.The SaddlesThe Joe Barden saddles (3 come with the Bridgeplate Assembly) are also made to vintage specs, using the brass material, but have their adjustment holes drilled at three different angles to provide correct intonation for all six strings, each of which requires a different saddle position.As an added feature, the outside saddles are notched under the “E” strings, like the vintage ’53 saddlOriginal material for vintage toneScooped for easier fingerpickingThicker for less squeal
