    While going through a box of spare parts and stuff I came across this package of offset saddles. I dont remember when and why I got these. I have worked on several Tele's over the years and I guess I would give them a try. Somewhere along the way they ended up in the spare parts box.
    I am a left handed guitar picker and now I cannot find a left handed bridge that these would work on. Any ideas out there on who makes a left handed bridge that these would work on. Or. should I just put them back in the box and get on with my day. 20200126_152759.jpg

    they used those offset screws on the strat+ in the early 90s I believe. I don't remember if they used them on all of the american standards though.


    I found a picture of a Lefty on Reverb, and those saddles would work on it.

    tele's and hardtails were the same.

    Here is pictures of the top and bottom of the saddle. The top has been cut to guide string. 20200129_082555.jpg 20200129_082614.jpg
