    Post up some pics of your Glendale's here, I rarely get to see any! I plan on getting a dreamcaster this summer, and maybe a retro classic after that (maybe he'll do one in sonic blue relic??). Best guitars I've ever had in my hands. Played a few at the Arlington show....Super nice guy too!

    Beautiful stuff! I've bought a few of their bridges and saddles and have had fantastic results. I can only imagine the guitars are the same.

    How Tele-ish does that sound with the trem?

    Is it the picture or is the bass side saddle steel? and brass on the other two?
    That's a beautiful T.

    I suspect that it's aluminum.

    Yeah, he offers lots of options, but that just looks like the Bakersfield twang set with aluminum for the E/A and steel for the rest. Of course, I could be wrong.

    Shoot, you can even mix and match the material of the string ferrules.

    I'm thinking about swapping out bridge and saddles on my CS Nocaster with Glendale's, do they make that much out a difference?

    I would never change out the bridge or saddles on a guitar I like if I can get them to intonate correctly.

    The stock Fender offering is great. Just as it should be. Only address an issue if you feel there is an issue!
