Callaham Tele® Bridges & Bridge Assemblies

Callaham Guitars Tele® bridge assemblies are manufactured from .075" cold rolled steel (unlike the stock Fender® bridges made from .045-.050" hot rolled steel). Callaham's unique manufacturing process ensures that the bridge sits flat on the guitar body, increasing sustain and eliminating the feedback and noise common with stock bridges. The sides of the Callaham vintage-style bridge assembly are lowered to allow for easier palm muting, and the front edge of the treble side of the bridge is removed to enable easier picking. Every Callaham saddle is buffed by hand to a high luster, allowing the string to rest on a perfectly smooth surface, and Callaham's design ensures that the strings won't touch the height adjustment screws.

Callaham's American Standard bridge assembly is designed to produce true Tele® tone in an American Standard guitar. It is a direct drop in replacement for the stock American Standard bridge.

Callaham American Standard Bridge Assembly for Telecaster®, Enhanced Saddles

This is a direct replacement for American Standard (American Series) guitars for those players wanting a vintage 3 saddle bridge sound. The bridge plate has a lower, cleaner profile than the stock plate allowing for better muting. The steel plate will dramatically increase sustain, volume, response time and string balance of an American Standard guitar compared to the stock brass plate. String holes have a full radius edge like the stock plate. The change is as significant as changing your pickups. Please remember that American Standard and Vintage plates are not interchangeable.

Bridge includes:

  • Callaham cold rolled steel nickel plated bridge plate
  • 3 Callaham Vintage Enhanced Brass or Stainless Steel Compensated Saddles
  • Stainless steel mounting screws and springs included
  • Height adjust allen wrench
  • High luster finish

Brass $135.00
