Dale's "Historically Correct" Spanish Electric set, is NOT compensated.
Your "Screamin 59's Intone cutting Edge set" are compensated.
When the word "Intone" is in the title, the set is comped.

i use the historic accurate ones that are not intonated. I love them. Not all teles need intone saddles by default.

These are almost exact replicas of early broadcaster saddles-smooth steel 5/16" (bigger than the 52RI saddles)

I also have a set of CJ tooling which are the same thing but intonated. (same size, same cold rolled steel, but only $25 )

I just replaced my CJ Tooling set of saddles with a Glendale set!! Big difference!! The set screws no longer get in my way, string spacing is spot on, intonation is better and they're just slick!! Big thumbs up for Glendale stuff!!!!

i've got these glendales:

they were friggin expensive, but i wanted one tele with close-to-perfect intonation for when i'm recording stuff up high. i got the "grooved" saddles because i didn't want the strings sliding around like they can on slanted saddles. these lock the strings in place like a vice, sound great, and intonate quite well!
