Completed in June 2014 it's the easiest installation yet. The STRAT14 comes with a hollow-bore saddle adjustment screw (and a spare) that allows you to use your own bridge saddle and retain the ability to set your intonation. The Mounting Adapter then straddles the tailpiece lip and the spring and screw and is held in place by tightening the two rear Mounting Screws against the tailpiece lip. Nothing ever touches the face of the guitar. It installs in less than a minute after you've swapped out your saddle adjustment screw. This bender also fits the Modern Tele with a hard-tail plate similar to the Strat (see bottom picture). If your tailpiece has bridge saddles like the ones pictured here, this is the bender for you! It is also available as a Double Bender.
THIS MODEL DOES NOT WORK ON THE HARDTAIL TELE BRIDGE WITH ''OFFSET" BRIDGE SADDLE SCREWS. USE THE TELE14 FOR OFFSET MODEL.

SEE TELE14 FOR "OFFSET" SADDLE SCREWS THAT LOOK SIMILAR TO THIS.
NOTE: There are various versions of Telecaster tailpieces that use the Hardtail plate (with only a lip on the back), and rather than using the Barrel Saddles, they use the rectangular Saddles as in the STRAT14 Quick Mount for Modern Tele Hardtail in the pictures above. Then there are various styles of the rectangular Saddle pieces themselves. It does not matter what style your rectangular Saddles are as long as the Saddle Adjustment screw is centered in the Saddle. The STRAT14 Quick Mount for Modern Tele Hardtail is the one to order. If the Saddle adjustment screws are not in the center of the saddles on your guitar, then you need to choose the TELE14 for Offset model.
