    Look for 10.8mm width. Steel, brass, Graph Tech String Saver, and probably other materials are available.

    I got a great set of brass block saddles for my affinity Tele for around 30 bucks on eBay. And yes, they do come in different sizes. Measure twice, buy once. I learned that the hard way. First set was way too narrow.

    I noticed that the original saddles on my Bullet Tele were pretty thick and kinda wide. My #1 string had a tendency to get pretty close to the edge of the fretboard and the fat saddles didn't allow much room for adjustment. I had a spare Squier Standard bridge so I swapped out the saddles and now I have enough room to put the strings where I want them. Plays and sounds better than ever!
