    Left is mexican strat, Middle is Allparts 2 7/32nd US strat, Right is an Allparts "vintage strat" saddle?

    I've been trying to figure out this so Im making a thread.

    The middle is definitely US spacing because I just replaced them with the US detemple/kts set.

    The deal is the saddle set on the right is too large for my real 59 strat and my self assembled warmoth chambered strat with callaham US block.

    If I remember correctly when I built my partscaster with vintage string width each saddle should be 10.8mm wide.

    Get a caliber and measure them all.

    Correct vintage saddle width should be or real close to 11.3mm to form a 2-7/32 string spread e to E.

    Mexican ones should have a width of 10.5mm to form a 2-1/16" string spread.

    Then there is the 10.8mm ones to form the 2-1/8" string spread.
