What is the mystique of a “52 Tele? Why is it so manyguitarists’ “Holy Grail”, (it is after all the epitome of simplicity)

Where does it’s’ tone come from?

Obviously body and neck wood has a major part to play but eventoday if you replicate a Swamp ash body and team it with a deep profile Mapleneck it still doesn’t sound quite right, until you put an old style threesaddle bridge on it.

Now you have the sound - the only thing you don’t have isperfect intonation! So you have this great guitar and you still can’t use it!

The WT3 has been designed to address this problem.

The saddles are the same dimension as the original, as isthe thin gauge steel base plate, (the base plate has to be steel as thisaffects the magnetic field of the pickup it surrounds, brass, stainless steelor aluminium will not have this authentic effect).

It is the design of the saddle that makes this bridgeunique. Unlocking the screw in the center of the saddle will allow you toadjust it through any degree of rotation that you need to achieve perfectstring-to-string intonation. Simple isn’t it?

So if you have an original Tele or any other version of thisgreat guitar you can have all the original tone and features and play in tuneas well!
