PEOPLE

High-Mass Bridge Saddles: The vintage-correct “brass bar” bridge saddles provide that sought-after, iconic tone full of the ringing output and snap that makes the Telecaster® famous.

Atomic™ Bridge Pickup: The addition of the roaring humbucking bridge pickup to the Strat® HSS gives you the best of both worlds—the output and crunch of a humbucking pickup and the sparkle of our Texas Special™ single-coil pickups in the middle and neck positions. “Maximum versatility” says it all.
