How to Intonate a Three Saddle Telecaster

Uncle Randy may have left us, but I'm here to help fill some of the void.  Here's an article I ran across that might be of some use:

Interesting topic, thanks for posting. When I ordered my '52 reissue from Music One, they did a bridge mod that matched the  style of bridge Danny Gatton used at the peak of his career. http://www.musiconeworkshop.com/bridges.html

Below are some shots of the Tele and the bridge

I'm going slightly off topic here, but Danny Gatton - my guitar hero!  The Humbler!!

When Susan and I were living in Maryland, we'd go see Tom Principato (who shared a history with Danny) and his band at a local pub in Columbia.  $10 cover  :o

One night I reserved advanced seating at a table that was right at the end of Tom's headstock.  What a treat to watch his picking that closely.  My ears rang for three full days.

Here's one of my favorite videos of all time - Danny and Tom tearing it up together back in 1988.  RIP Danny!
