Original-Looking C`compensated Brass Saddles
Anonymous 12.02.2016
I recently ordered an ABM Roller Bridge for one of my other guitars and was so impressed that I ordered a set of these for my Tele.
I already have compensated brass saddles fitted, but they are the more common ones with the offset machined flats, which work well but start to sound like a sitar when they wear. It's easy to see why this happens: a groove wears into the soft brass where the string passes over it, causing the string to cut into the edge and then sit on the machined flat. Next thing is a sitar-like buzz.
These saddles are designed differently: just a very simple groove cut into the brass barrel - one for each string - exactly where required for proper intonation. Ingenious! Plus, they also have the benefit of looking exactly like original vintage saddles from anything other than inches away.
Easy to fit, great-looking, great-sounding. Highly recommended.

No difference

I changed for these on my chinese tele type to see if they provided me with a difference that would suggest i should change on the other tele types.
There is a difference when i sit alone and spend all my energy on analyzing, but as soon as i play with my band or with backing tracks i would not be able to tell these apart from the chinese cheap saddles.
So…. To me they are a waste of money - not because they are bad but i honestly dont know if they are better or not. They are just a little bit different….

Great tele upgrade!
LaurensDHs 14.06.2020
I am really liking these saddles, both the looks and sound. Noticed a dramatic change in sound compared to the (cheap) stock saddles on my telecaster. Very easy to install and intonate thanks to the V-shaped notches. Had a great experience with an ABM strat trem system in the past. This product is no exception: great quality and finish. Highly recommended! One very minor comment though: the colour of my particular set was slightly different from the set shown in the picture.
