I agree in general that we should not take a hacksaw to a Telecaster the first time some nut on a forum says "Cut it off!!!". But the height screws in Tele saddles are to me like new strings we cut to length, or a nut blank we file slot depths in. If we put the new Fender bridge on a guitar with a really flat board radius neck, the height screws might all be buried in the saddles. But with a vintage 7.25 board radius, a setup that buries the low E height screw so your hand isn't grinding against the screw head, that overall height puts the D and G saddles so high that the height screws are almost all the way through the saddles, with not enough threads plus more chance a screwdriver will mess up the saddle threads having to go so far in to reach the screw. Saddle height screws need to be tailored to board radius in a good setup, but they don't come that way from the factory, because setups vary and board radius' vary. Many of us go to the hardware store and buy shorter "grub screws", but those are usually allen head, and may still not be just the right length. Anyone who has a really good tech setting up their Telecasters will probably have had some cutting done by the tech! But a good tech doesn't have time to call us up each time he gets out a cutting tool while setting up our guitar, so we may not know exactly what the tech did.
