    hey

    Just a hello from Cornwall, in the UK...

    I’ve been a long-time Tele fan and have seen lots of useful posts from TDPRI over the years, and have finally joined!

    Im sure I’ll be asking for your help and knowledge soon enough, no doubt!

    Cheers for now
    Alex

    Hello and welcome to TDPRI.
    Love the color on your tele, but I must comment. You seem to have the problem saddles that the new MIM Teles are shipping with. They added strat saddles which block the restringing holes on the bridge.

    There are other problems as well with these saddles, like vibrating out of place changing the intonation, rotating around, etc. Look into this, we have plenty of threads here. Fender will fix it for no cost, sometimes they'll replace the whole guitar to be honest, and that's not too groovy.

    A cheap solution is for you to buy the old block style saddles and replace them yourself, $30 and five minute swap.

    Glad that you joined us.
