    You are lucky you had a 4 Screw Bridge, so no problem. I bought my first Tele American Standard in 2008 ($1400). It had a 3 Screw with String Ferrule Holes in a different location. At the time, nothing was available to Retrofit, so I dumped it and started building my own. Gotoh and Hipshot have replacements now, if you are stuck with that Bridge. Now they have a 3 Saddle with 4 Screws, but String holes are above Screws? Fender does this on purpose!

    Awesome - tough question how much does she weight?

    I wish I could fine a deal everything here in Nashville is overpriced right now?

    Didn't occur to me to weigh it... Doesn't seem any heavier than any other tele(?)

    I've got a 2001 Standard MIM in Arctic White I'll sell you if you want to make the drive to ATL. :)

    IMG_20210131_084936.jpg Do the vintage tuners and bakelite guard and it`s complete. I didn`t do the bridge ,i can live with it and also like that it don`t have upturned edges. Doing the intonation is easier too

    Nice! I used to love butterscotch until it became synonymous with Squire Affinities.

    Looks great!
    I've recently got a 20/21 MIM Player too and want to swap out the bridge for a 3 saddle one. Was it an easy job? No new holes? Did it need a full set up after? Any difference in sound?
    Also, did you get the ash tray with the bridge or was that separate? I've not seen both for sale online?
