    I have a quick question for you all. I recently got a new Squier Paranormal Thinline Cabronita (Jazzbronita?). It's a lovely guitar. The neck feels great, the frets are nicely done, the Fiesta Red finish looks good, and the pickups sound really nice.

    The hardware is a little cheap, though. The first two things I want to replace are the tuners (which have an annoying amount of play in them) and the bridge saddles (since I don't like bent steel strat saddles).

    I'm looking to buy some Gotoh block saddles in steel or brass (haven't decided which). The problem is that I don't know what size to get. I gather that some bridges need 10.5mm saddles and some need 10.8mm saddles. Unfortunately, the distinction is so fine that I'm not confident I can accurately determine it with a ruler.

    Does anyone know what size saddles I need for this guitar? 10.5mm or 10.8mm?

    Your help is much appreciated!
