What type of replacement saddle can I buy for this guitar?
Is it a hard tail with 6 saddles?
I replaced mine with a spare set of the solid saddles from a affinity telecaster that were giving to me. (2 1/16th spacing I think they are, can't measure at them moment. Someone correct me if they know for sure the spacing size.)
I didn't like the bent steel saddles that came on the VM Tele Deluxe, they were too wide and really didn't fit the bridge properly and pushed the high "e" string off the neck.
The new narrower saddles fixed that.
I seem to remember a few cases of people posting about the squier thinlines having the same issue as they had the same saddles.
I got a chance to measure and they are indeed 2-1/16ths size.
For budget, GFS has some, http://www.guitarfetish.com/Upgrade-Stainless-Steel-Saddles-Fits-Trems-Set-of-Six_p_773.html
Graphtech also makes string savers that are nice but a little pricier. http://www.graphtech.com/products/b...er-originals-strat-tele-2-1-16-string-spacing
There are probably several makers to choose from. Hope this helps
