Original Tele Bridge Plate


  • Original Tele Bridge Plate

    TV Jones pickups and Teles are like long lost lovers...anyone who has picked up a Fender Cabronita knows that to be the truth. It’s almost unexplainable but there is something really special about That Great Gretsch Sound exploding out of a slab of wood bolted to a 25.5” neck. Our Tele Bridge Plates are made in the USA out of cold-rolled steel and are specifically designed to fit Filter’Tron style pickups such as our Universal or No Ears Mount. This plate comes with 6 adjustable saddles and everything you need to mount.

    This Original Tele Bridge Plate mounts with 4 holes.

  • Note: Original Gretsch Filter’trons and TV Jones Filter’trons have a clean 1/4” corner radius. Some modern Gretsch Filter’trons are made with more square-like corners and may not fit this plate.

  • Technical Notes

    Modern vs Original: The Modern Tele Bridge Plate mounts with 3 holes and the Original Tele Bridge Plate mounts with 4 holes.

You guys are the best. Top quality gear, top quality service.

I love TV Jones products, I have many on several guitars, super snappy delivery here to Australia, couldn't ask for more. I will be buying more from you soon. Thanks very much.

"Original Tele Plate"

Oddly enough, the "original" (4 screw) plate comes with a six-saddle bridge while the "modern" (3 screw) plate has three saddles. Almost broke the deal for me, but ... I ordered it anyway and am glad I did! It intonates perfectly and feels great under my right hand. It is solidly made and looks great. I "hot-rodded" a boutique thin line style Tele (Classic Hollow T by Don Grosh) with a set of TV Jones Classics. I love how it turned out - it looks, plays and sounds incredible!

Great Product

This is a great product. Flawless quality and flawless fit (4 screw version into 2015 50s Baja Tele.) Installation went without surprises. Initial setup, action, intonation, etc was about as straightforward as I could ask for.

The final result looks great, works great, sounds great, and feels great under my palm.

The only complaints I might have are that the intonation adjustment screws are a little too long so restringing is slightly more difficult than it might be. They're M3-0.5x18. I looked around for some suitable M3-0.5x15, but decided to just cut down the existing screws. It's not required, but makes restringing in the dark a little quicker and easier.

One other minor thing: the holes that the strings pass through from below are a slightly smaller than the holes in the body, so restringing is not as smooth and painless as it could be. Next time I have the strings off I'll remove the bridge and hit the holes with a tapered counter sink. not enough to go through, but just enough to make a funnel shape.
