    Without breaking the bank. Going on an ash partscaster, maple neck, Duncan vintage stack pups. Definitely interested in compensated brass saddles. Any suggestions?

    Philadelphia Luthier Supply website has their own compensated saddles and the Gotoh In Tune.

    They have bridge plates in regular steel or stainless, and you can get them in chrome, nickel, gold, (raw steel?)

    They also have them with cut down sidewalls.

    A lot of nice choices

    Get a basic AV52 style plate from Darren Riley for $ 15, and also get those Fender mildly slant compensated brass saddles from Darren also. $ 19

    No affiliation, just a long term repeat customer. His storefront is said to be closed (for the time being) but I've always done business long distance anyway.

    I used Barden bridges on both of my recent builds. They have compensated saddles and run about $40 (if memory serves).
