Specifically I'm bastardizing one of my parts Teles with a Gibson scale conversion neck and am thinking of foregoing the 3 brass saddle vintage spec bridge. Any with 6 decent saddles?? I've seen some discussion on a bridge from Armadillo.

Cool biz TE, that looks a lot more palatable than the booteek Armadillo I just looked at. I didn't realize their initial price is without saddles.

Just to be sure, the Gotoh is a direct replacement for the vintage style Tele bridge, not the American Std, right?

The vintage bridge has wider (adult) spacing.

I replaced mine with a Gotoh.
