    Hey there,

    has anybody had any luck in finding block style saddles for their fender thinlines?

    I'm looking for a set that look like this...

    as opposed to these that come on 70s style fender guitars...

    I just want to make sure the spacing is correct before I buy a new set. They've got to be spaced to work with the wide range humbuckers on my 72 reissue.

    I'm pretty sure they're out there because I've seen players with these kind on their 70s telecasters

    I've used a set from GFS. Worked perfectly well.

    Nice, do you happen to remember what the string spacing was on the set you ordered?

    Sorry no, but they fit my American Standard perfectly.
