    Anyone know off the top of their head? I'm looking at some new saddles but don't have my Tele in front of me. Thanks.

    Lonn, which bridge have you got in mind?

    The width of the saddle depends on which bridge you choose. Tends to be that intermediate width saddle, which I think is 10.5 mm? One of the reasons that those James Burton/Nashville Deluxe style saddles perform so badly is, they try to force a string array onto a Tele ( a full 2 + 3/16ths inches ) and truly the guitar resists this too wide arrangement. The natural tendency with a 3 barrel adds up to a string array around 2 + 1/8ths inches.
