So I've been playing a Mexican Tele for 15 years or so (it's an early 2000's model). I was recently gigging nightly and I started to break strings like crazy. Someone pointed out my old saddles and I saw that they were the culprit (really jagged crevices). So I'm looking to either replace the saddles, or perhaps upgrade. Problem is I have no experience with this type of thing and I've noticed there are TONS of options to choose from. I've been looking at the classic brass saddles, both for the look and the sound. The sound definitely seems richer, fuller, more character, but it also seems to add some specific high frequencies that seem a little shrill to my ear. I know that's exactly what typically sets the Tele apart, I'm just not so sure it's what I want. I understand you can get "compensated" ones that don't have the same intonation issues that the classic brass ones have. Even if I decide to get brass saddles though, this is the bridge I'm currently working with, not the brand, but at least in design: https://www.thomann.de/gr/gotoh_hw_40c.htm Is there a brass saddle set that won't require me to drill more holes in the guitar? Also is there one like that without the ashtray thing jutting out? I did quite a bit of searching but couldn't find that combination. My other options is to just replace the bridge or saddles I have with the same. But I'd rather get something better to improve the sound and longevity. I'm also open to new suggestions if anyone would like to share some.
