One of my classic gripes about Telecaster bridges, be they classic two-strings-per-barrel or one-saddle-per-string is that they never seem to intonate correctly. The Babicz Full Contact bridge not only corrects this problem, but introduces new features that allow you to set up your Telecaster to play like a dream.
The first impression I got of the Babicz FCH Telecaster Bridge was that it feels SOLID. This isn't some cheap, flimsy bridge. This is a substantial chunk of finely-crafted metal. Just looking at the patent-pending eCAM technology you know that this product is for real and can't wait to get it installed. Installation is easy; remove the old bridge (a handful of screws) and install the FCH, which comes with all of the hardware (including mounting screws) and instructions necessary to fit the FCH bridge perfectly... not that it's overly-complicated anyway.
I looked at, but did not try any other Telecaster replacement bridges prior to purchasing the Babicz but now that I have, I firmly believe I made the correct choice. Once I got the bridge installed, I immediately noticed that the guitar is ringing "truer" and that it is playing much smoother. This is a piece of hardware that anyone unhappy with their Telecaster setup shouldn't be without.
The bridge is available in different colors to match your guitar and is an exact fit (at least it was in my case). The real payoffs came once I had the bridge installed. I immediately noticed that the guitar was ringing "truer" and had a significant improvement in sustain and acoustic resonance. Then I dove into the eCAMs. The ability to independently intonate and adjust action on a per-string basis is outstanding. My Telecasters now play and sound exactly as I'd always envisioned.
Anyone who is unhappy with the playability or flexibility of the bridge on their Telecaster should replace their bridge with the FCH without hesitation. Now all of my Telecasters are fitted with the Babicz FCH. I'm now even looking into their Stratocaster product for some of my Stratocaster guitars. That's how strongly I feel about this product. The bridge comes with a three-year factory warranty, but it's so well-built I can't see needing it. Try one today!!
