T-Tune Introduces Harmonic Bridge Saddles

Compensated bridge saddles for vintage style 3- saddle Telecaster-bridge with 100% vintage correct appearance.

Hamburg, Germany, (August 28, 2015) -- T-Tune Guitar Parts announces “Harmonic Bridge Saddles“ a simple but very effective solution for the old Telecaster 3- Saddle bridge intonation problem! By precision cutting small slots in the saddles, the string “Break-point” is moved to the exact point where it should be to achieve perfect intonation at the twelfth fret. The strings sit in the slots which then are covered by the string so that you don't see any difference- you only hear it! When fitted, they look completely vintage correct, which particularly appeals to the Vintage Telecaster purists!

T-Tune Harmonic Bridge Saddles are made from a high quality, hard brass (like that used by Fender in the Fifties!) Although similar to other products, Harmonic Bridge Saddles are even simpler and with several technical advantages:

  • No intonation problems occur as a result of sideways slipping of the strings ( as with saddles that have been drilled at an angle)
  • Minimal material removal (in comparison to wedge-shaped saddles)
  • Large point of contact between string and saddle (results in improved tone)
  • No extreme kinking of the string (reduces the possibility of string breakage)
  • Can also be used on Left-handed guitars
  • Can be used with plain or wound G-strings

Introductory Price: €39/$45

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
