    Hi,

    I just bit the telecaster bug, and ended up with the current classic vibe 50's telecaster, in white blonde.

    And I'm rather impressed. The store I bought it from did a good setup on it, and I'm rather happy with the guitar.

    One question I have is it worth while changing to a brass compensated bridge?

    Anyway I don't think this will be my last telecaster, I'm just enjoying it so much.

    How does it intone with the stock saddles? If your ok with intonation there is no need to change anything. Welcome aboard.

    Welcome. As far as the bridge thing goes you'll get a ton of opinions on that. My take on it is that it's not that complicated. They all do the job quite well.

    Hello Ivy Jane, welcome to TDPRI. Glad to have you here.
    I have the same guitar in my collection. I saw no need to change anything on it, and love the sound of it.

    Thanks everyone. The intonation is pretty much right. So I’ll live with bridge as is.

    I’m loving the tones I can get.

    again thanks all

    Welcome... I'd also say play it the way it is for now and enjoy. But it's a cheap and reversible mod if you want to try it in the future (as long as the mounting holes are compatible). Even if the intonation is ever so slightly off (which it kind of has to be with the original design) that can just add character... Also you can probably just upgrade the saddles without needing to change the entire bridge, an even easier change...
