That Classic Tele® - just a little more refined!

The Axesrus® Vintage Bridge, designed to fit a Fender® Telecaster® or similar models with the 4 screw bridge.

We're breaking away from the traditional Tele® Bridge here, and taking heavy inspiration from the rarely used bridge on the 1972 Custom model, with a few little twists of our own to bring this bridge in line with what people really want from their Telecaster®.

With this design, we’ve taken those 6 individual saddles (rather than the 3 “2 string” saddles), purely because they’re going to give you unrivalled control over your intonation and action, but rather than stick with the Zinc saddles used historically, we’ve brought in those beautiful polished brass barrels to really nail that classic Tele® tone!

The advantages of brass saddles vs Zinc (and steel) aren’t really very well documented, but in short, they’ll give a wonderful warmth to a Telecaster®, and with the right pickups, can really help balance out this often sharp guitar thanks to their softer structure and higher mass being in direct contact with the strings.

We’ve really smoothed out the old “Ash Tray” design here too, taking special care to maintain the look of a lipped, vintage Telecaster® bridge, but without some of the more “rustic” edges you’ll see on many production guitars. Our bridge is silky smooth, no sharp edges

The base plate itself is made from 1.5mm piece of cold rolled steel, so the surface is absolutely immaculate thanks to the low level of slag on the surface of the steel, and the chrome plating gives a perfect mirror finish, with no Axesrus® branding as we strive to keep these bridges looking classy and neutral.

All in all, whilst it’s still pretty close to the old vintage design that people have come to know and love, there’s a few nice little twists in there that really do bring the Telecaster® bridge a little more up to date, without compromising the tones you’re going to get from your guitar.

5 of 5 Good bridge, well made. February 15, 2015

Swapped out a 3 saddle Tele bridge on a Japanese Tele for this. Is a nicely made bridge, all the parts seem quality items. Dropped right in and was a doddle to set up. Really like the brass barrel look. If only you did them for strats too!
