    What are you favourite saddles for a 6 saddle bridge?

    I am in the market for some for a partscaster tele and might replace the vintage saddles on my strat if I like them.

    Thanks!

    I used Strat bent saddles on my last project. Worked well.

    I really like those as well, and have put those on most of my guitars with a six saddle bridge. It's really just preference- they feel right to me, but it's probably all in my head.

    My favorite saddles, will depend on which fit really well on that specific guitar and which add to or detract least from, the sound I am getting or trying to get out of that specific musical instrument. Sometimes a Callaham Bent Steel is best and sometimes it is "too much".

    Mostly, anything but Graphtech (or Tusq) or anything else that sounds like dried chewing gum.

    Okay, I like that. Is that a fender plate and saddles or another maker?

    I like the Gotoh.

    If you’d like to try one of these cheap, hit me up.

    Not sure, it is just a picture I googled of the "Bubba Mod" which I believe was invented on this site. You drill out a modern bridge and install 3x brass saddles. That may be a manufactured bridge though, not sure. Just search for bubba mod on here and I'm sure you will see quite a few threads
