    I think he was right.
    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.

    I've tried both but now I've got Gotoh bridges on all of my Teles.

    Aaarrgh! Nice bridges, but how can you handle those palm grinders? I file my adjustment screws down to where they are flush with the top of the saddles, and they are much nicer on my right hand.

    Those height adjusting screws would be a LOT shorter on my guitar. My right hand hurts just looking at that bridge and you like that better ? They make nice parts though.

    Ha ha,I was typing as you were typing about those awful screws. That bridge pup is very far from the strings too. Strange setup. Everyone is different.

    To those using a narrow 3 saddle bridge, do you detect any gap (butt crack) between the bridge and body near the treble edge of the rear pickup?

    I went down to the machine shop at work and got some set screws of different lengths and an allen key to adjust them. I replaced them all on both my 72 thinline and my old 75 Tele with the 3 barrel bridge....no more chewed up hands. They're no longer "stock" but they are playable. I believe they are 4-40 threads.

    There ya go! I remember when I got my first Telecaster many years ago and it came with the ol' Ashtray on there. I found that thing to limit my style too much, so I took it off. That was my first painful introduction to those screws. Shortly after that, I backed them all out and filed them down so they were flush with the top of the saddle. Much better!

    I played with my ashtray for years. I finally got into palm muting about 10 - 15 years ago when I started using strats and Gibbys
