Sustain and Bite From the String-Through-Body Bridge

Contributing to the Telecaster's legendary sound, the 6-saddle string-through-body bridge anchors the strings deep into the solid alder body. This design allows every note to ring out loud and clear with maximum sustain. The bent steel saddles add a dash of metallic bite, helping your leads and rhythms project with cutting presence. Combined with the resonant alder body, this bridge translates every nuance from your pick attack and fretting hand into pure Fender tone.
