Excellent product, but mind the screws. July 18, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Leicester, United Kingdom  
Fantastic service; delivered 48 hours after ordering with the free delivery (2nd class postage). Saddles are very good quality and add a mellowness not heard with the bent steel saddles on modern Fenders. Installation was very easy and took no time at all except for an issue with the screws; the screws provided with the saddles were too long for my Roadhouse Strat (Mexican) and cover the string hole. The solution was to saw away around 3mm of the screw, which fixed the problem.
Would definitely recommend the saddles and the service.

Tele USA Standard upgrade May 5, 2016
Reviewer: David G from United Kingdom  
So what do they sound like?  Well, just for context, they're replacing a set of bent steel Strat-style saddles found on the new-ish American Standard bridge (the one with the script logo on, and the bridge fitted to current US-production Telecasters).  The bent steel saddles sound twangy, but not in a good Tele-ish way; they overload, just as an acoustic guitar does when you strum it too hard, with overtones I didn't want to hear.  

The brass Gotohs - by contrast - are much better controlled in that respect but, most importantly, are warmer and smoother; with a 6 way, you get that perfect, piano-like intonation, but also have the right balance of warmth and bite that really good (i.e. Callaham, for me at any rate) 3 way brass saddles have.

So my 3 cents worth; I'm pleased, and I'd definitely recommend these to anyone looking for an upgrade.  Changing the bridge and saddles on a Tele is a more fundamental change in tonality - and quality -  to me than changing pickups, although doing that is of course another major determinant of your tone (but is another story entirely).
