Raw Vintage Pure Steel Saddles and Tremolo Springs

December 2, 2009
EWSRawVintageSaddle_lgPure Steel Saddles ($64 street) are an authentic replacement for vintage or modern Fender Stratocaster saddles, and are designed to provide the same hardness of the original ’50s-era saddles to accurately transmit string vibrations. These replacement bridge saddles reportedly utilize the same manufacturing processes and metallurgy that were used in the ’50s—including plating the nickel directly onto the steel instead of onto a copper coating as with modern saddles. Likewise, the Tremolo Springs ($20 for a 5-piece set) are the correct diameter and tension to provide the same feel and resonant qualities as the springs used by Fender in the 1950s.
