possible FT saddles needed

Post by Sgt. Vimes on Sun Sep 29, 2013 6:02 pm

I've made an offer for this LX
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400579448515?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

if all goes to plan I will need some saddles for the FT trem,  I found these
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-ZINC-L-SHAPED-BRIDGE-SADDLES-FOR-FENDER-TELECASTER-BK-/170706926962?pt=UK_Guitar_Accessories&hash=item27beecfd72

but if they don't fit....anyone have any spares I can buy? or can recommend some replacements?

remember...this is all a state of IF at the moment.

I can do you a couple of saddles that'll fit; they're not Bendmaster but Hohner, but they'll do the job!

Let me know.

maybe something like this?

i got a partial bridge from ebay because i needed the fine tuners. 
they worked perfectly for me. 
i checked the baseplate and it is not identical to a Westone model (the string hooks from Westone do not fit in the slots). and the support post spacing is off as well. i didn't check to see if the holes for the sustain block are the same.



but, the saddles seem to be the right size.
and this set is extra, 6 saddles & springs, 4 original screws and one replacement

also have some fine tuners. these 5 1/2 are from my LX.
the threads and the length matched, just not the shape of the head, so i change all of them.

Aw thanks, that would be awesome, except I won't be getting that lx now, the seller and I cannot agree on the valuation, shame really.
But thanks for the replies, good to know there are some spares out there!
I suspect someone else might be here asking the same thing before long.

I have, however secured a different westone, more to follow as and when it arrives ;-)
