    What do you avid tele players recommend for a bridge/saddle replacement for an AVRI '62 telecaster? It has on the stock bridge and threaded saddles. Any recommendations or suggestions would be welcome :) Thanks for your time.

    i like glendale and stock fender bridges. glendale "intone" saddles are the ones i've used the most, but i just got a new danocaster that has (i believe) CJ Tooling saddles and these things look, sound and intonate great!

    Wilkinson compensating saddles. Best option IMO.

    I have the glendale, they do what they're supposed to, they intonate almost perfectly w/ 9's. They are kinda pricey now though. I think I remember paying $35 for mine way back when. I just ordered some saddles from C&J Tooling for another guitar, they cost half as much- hopefully I like them as much as the glendales. Really the stock fenders are fine even with being slightly out of tune up the neck. And I like twang so I like the stock fender plate which you already have.

    Just curious, what's wrong with what's on there? To answer your question the suggestions made so far are good ones. Glendale or Rutters would be my choice depending on what I personally wanted. I would suggest to go to Glendales site as he describes what the different saddle material will do for you tonewise. All these guys make great stuff, Callaham, Glendale, Rutters, all highly recommended. I've never had any experience with the Wilkinson stuff.
