    Kohler, Rutters and Glendale are all expensive but they really are the best.

    I know but it's just kind of weird to put such expensive stuff on a working man's guitar.
    Leo would probably shake his head.
    Some folks,when they start buying this stuff spend more on "improvements" than a complete Tele should cost.

    True - it's part of the "boutique" craze that has people spending large on everything from beer to gear. I must confess, though, that I bought a Regal resonator guitar new on eBay for $400 and it was spectacular in every aspect except for the tuners, which made it worthless. Turns out they were exact replicas of Waverly tuners, a set of which cost me $140. A very dis-proportionate purchase, but they were an easy install with no necessary modifications and did make the guitar perfect. With something that is as relatively simple to engineer as a barrel bridge saddle, that kind of money is a bit twisted, and that's why I'd recommend the Wilkinson or Barden bridge to someone who wants a vintage Tele bridge that intonates and perhaps sounds better than stock.

    Anyone have experience between these 2 types and the differences if any?

    There's your answer right there. $60 or so for a set of Glendales right? "Vintage" looking Telecaster have 3 saddles, it's part of the vibe IMO. Yo can get the stock three barrel saddles close if you're handy with a file but I can't get them exact unless I bend the screw and that's another can of worms. I agree with Mike, a quality set of compensated three barrel brass saddles is the answer.

    I'm runnnin' a Wilkinson and a Barden on two Teles and they are workin' fine.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    OK, I'm taking them off!

    It's like my dad used to say, "Son, it only costs 90% more to go first class."
