Interesting product. However I'm concerned about the extended contact. Someone will probably buy one but the best thing to do with the American Standard type of body (through holes moved up the body, bunched together) is to play it as it is or sell it and get a Tele with the through holes further down the body and further apart. Or convert to top loader somehow. I think the best feel and sound comes from a string that's loose in that it just kisses the break point on the saddle then doesn't touch anything until it finds the hole through the bridge plate. Steep break angles are just as undesirable as extremely shallow ones. I think when a string starts to wrap around a saddle, it kills the string. It holds it too tight, and this makes the guitar play tight, and sound tight. However, I am imagining this would work (on an American Series, etc.) better than the Babicz works (whatever model). Remember that the basic bridge plate on the Americans (series and standard) before 2008 are made of just the cheapest yellow pot metal. This has got to be an improvement on that although maybe the material chosen will mess with the 60 cycle noise canceling of a blade or other HB T bridge pickup.
