When the Telecaster (Broadcaster) was designed in 1950, the bridge was crude at best. It served the purpose of positioning the strings, but allowed for only coarse intonation adjustment. Callaham's bridge saddles use superior materials and design that deliver a wider frequency response, increased sustain, and perfect intonation. It is extremely important that an instrument intonate correctly, and Callaham guarantees this with their saddles. Guitars that are not intonated properly will play out of tune all along the neck. It's equally important that the strings don't touch the height adjustment screws, which can be a problem on Fender bridges and their copies. Callaham uses smaller-diameter setscrews, and moves them closer to the ends of the saddles to avoid this. Additionally, they are the only manufacturer that buffs every saddle, by hand, to a high luster. This allows the string to rest on a perfectly smooth surface. They also install height-adjustment screws of the correct length, preventing the screws from protruding up above the saddles and causing discomfort to the picking hand.
