I dont know if 3-on-a-side tele would fly. I think there is a very limited group of people that would buy that. Tele players have it in thier head what a tele should look like. You mention tele and people think 1952 blackguard. my gut says to me that they average tele player is willing to invest in a tele better than the standard fender offering, but that it has to look similar albeit not exactly the same. 3 on a side is just sacrilage to many of those players. What i would really like to see an accurate 50's body with a good vintage style three saddle bridge and awsome bridge pickup, and bakelite pickguard. If I really had my wish, a mini bucker in the neck.

Well, I'll take the tune-o-matic bridge over a 3-saddle tele bridge, so pretending that my vote counts - I say 'no way' to the 3 saddle arrangement. yak

I'm all for tradition when tradition seems to offer a technically superior solution or even a more beautiful solution - maybe it's just me, but I see no reason to hinder this alternative to the tune-o-matic with a 3 saddle arrangement.

Set neck - check
mini bucker in the neck - check
Body style tele (as long as it's a belly-tele)  - check
root beer burst finish - check
3 on a side or 6 on a side tuners - no preference
3 saddle bridge - wrong answer, back to the drawing board for me

To me there are a few things that "make" a tele a tele. The primary one is the bridge pickup and its interaction with the steel bridge. The pickup itself actually magnetized about 1/2" of the bridge greatly enlarging the magnetic apeture of the pickup. I personally believe this is part of the reason for the twang. The neck pickup is someone useless to be as it is under powered, and choked by its brass cover.

Can I ask what you dont like about the 3 saddle bridge?

The "compensated" 3 saddle bridges do a good job of addressing your concern: I put one on my son's Warmoth Tele that I built for him, and it intonates very well.

Funny thing Bel I play mostly neck pu.Having both 6 and 3 saddle bridge's on my main tele what I found was that the 6 saddle took away all that made a tele and made it a strat.

 cop cop :cop:WARNING ABOUT TO MAKE A SEXIST COMPARISON,NOT MEANT TO OFFEND,PLEASE FORGIVE. cop cop cop

Strat or 6 saddle bridge's are like that really sweet girl that say's it ok baby I can keep those mistake's covered up.

Tele 3 saddle bridge's are the girl that say's you need to work this me to get what you want.....

I hope this make's some sort of sence.Its the secret sauce to me.

How about a couple of analogies? They're sometimes helpful.   

Tune-o-matic = M-16.
Tele bridge = AK47.

tune-o-matic = Yamaha XS650.
tele = Triumph Bonneville

tune-o-matic = inline skates
tele = strap on skates

Whats also funny since I was 18 I have played all bar gigs barefooted.I also started playing tele's then.

I should clear this up a little when performing I take off my fuzzy slippers and play barefooted.this is a great help in playing MIDI,since I'm not smart enough to program the MIDI unit so all I have to do is step on a pedal to change programs I use my bid toe on use the spin wheel to scroll from program to program.

First of all - I'm not necessarily asking for a Tele, but something other than tune-o-matic.  I didn't realize there were compensated 3 saddle bridges.  If so, then that does ease some concerns.

The only tele I liked playing was a Thinline with the semi-hollow body and buckers.  I'm not a chickin' pickin fan - mainly because I can't play that way - I like to hear it now and then, but I wouldn't pay for a Larry Tele just for that twang sound.
