Fender compensated saddles did it!

    Just slapped Fender compensated saddles on my tele. About 36€. Another successful cheap mod (the other being: new bone nut to get proper string alignment and play on lower positions… 30€ cut and installed on the spot).

    Got to intonate as close to perfect as it ever will matter to me (and it matters, since I play jazz chords up the fretboard with her). My preference for vintage-style bridges is now firm and without reservations.

    So for those of you wondering if it works. It does ;) And I even think it looks good!

    Nice! Yup, looks good. I need to do the same. Did you have Radius Gauge to set the saddle height?

    I have the full set and it helped in doing the last check. Frankly, though, if you measure action for each string you can’t go wrong. Definitely not must have – a nice ruler is enough.

    Thanks for the info, really appreciate it. I'll order myself a set of these.
