Anyone put a TV Jones Savalas bridge on a tele?

    Saw a tele in a TV Jones ad in GP and checked out their site. They have a video of a tele modded with their Savalas bridge and a pair of filtertron pickups in it. Sounds great. I'm probably going to put one together and was wondering if anyone here has already done that.

    It's goig to be Sherwood Green Metallic, with a white pearl guard. The Filtertrons I'm using are made by Curtis Novak.

    My user name at a couple of other forums has been "Tele Savalas" for a few years now, so I thought it was funny that they came up with that name about a month after I ordered one from them.

    Is that bridge a humbucker size?

    A few years ago I ordered a humbucker route tele from warmoth but with a single sized bridge. The single sized bridge never did cover the entire route.

    So I guess the hum sized bridges are wider than the standard single size?

    Yeah, that's my sig at the other boards. No, McGriff, the routs and the opening in the bridge are specific to Filtertrons, which are smaller than Humbuckers, but not the same dimensions as either a P-90 or a mini HB.
