RockRabbit Modern Titanium Telecaster Bridge
The Modern Tele Bridge plate is machined out of Grade 5 Titanium (6Al-4V) that is 200% stronger than stainless steel and much more rigid than a weaker Grade 2 Titanium. The .071” thick plate is very strong and yet lighter than other materials. The entire assembly of plate and saddles weighs in at only 2.75oz (78g)!
Titanium Elliptical Saddles
The 6 saddles are carved out of a solid piece of Grade 38 Titanium, a ballistic grade of lightweight armor plate that’s sometimes called ‘Strike Plate’. The design is the same as our Elliptical Strat saddles, only they are machined for a 2-1/8” Tele string spacing. The strings follow a smooth elliptical path up and over the saddle and the long tapped threads make for height screws with a solid feel, not at all like the wobbly bent steel saddles that only catch 2 or 3 threads on the screw.
Clarity, Harmonics and Sustain are the words customers use to describe their love for Ti. Think tone like raw high carbon steel without the hassle of plating to crack, wear, or peel.
Everything at RockRabbit is machined in Indiana, USA out of Mil-spec grade materials. From raw USA Titanium or Aircraft Aluminum to finished product shipped directly to you. All the stainless screws included are made in MA and the stainless springs are made in KY.
