2-3/16" Barden Compensated Saddle Set - American Standard TeleŽ


Joe Barden Bridgeplate and Saddle Kits for vintage-style Telecasters™ solve all of the structural problems and intonation issues inherent in the original parts.

The new Saddles are made to vintage specs, using the original 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 saddles. This notch helps correct the "loud outside string" problem common to many Telecasters, and adds additional height adjustment capability, while retaining an important and authentic vintage design spec. All screws are original spec 6-32 US thread, stainless steel to insure against corrosion.

Like Joe Barden pickups, these components are direct retrofits for vintage-style Telecasters, and require no modification to vintage instruments that would otherwise alter their unique vintage character.

The Saddle Kit is available separately, and will mount directly to an original bridgeplate. All necessary hardware is supplied.

Joe Barden Compensated Bridge Saddle Set for American Standard TeleŽ. Brass. 2-1/8" spacing.
