    Default Modern or Vintage Bridge?

    So Iím finishing up my Telecaster build and trying to decide which bridge to use...

    I think that the vintage 3 brass compensated bridge looks better but I will be sacrificing the individual intonation adjustment.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    I don't have a problem with the compensated bridges at all. They can be adjusted to get dang close to perfect and that's close enough. I like the way they look too, go for the 3 brass barrels.
    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.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    I'm in the other camp and prefer individual string adjustment - not just for intonation but I think you get a better control of action also.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
