The WT3 bridge has become the choice of many boutique brands for their T style bridge which is hardly surprising considering it’s build quality, tone and unique saddle mechanism.
Trev Wilkinson’s reworking of the classic 50’s T style bridge allows the player to intonate perfectly while still retaining the classic three saddle arrangement that is so important when trying to retain the sound that the original T guitar created.
Of course materials are crucial to maintain that desirable tone, and the WT3 utilises only a cold rolled
steel surround/base plate which will allow the magnetism from the bridge pickup to flow into its body, thus creating the desirable magnetic field for the classic T bridge pickup tone.
The genius in the saddle design is both simple and highly effective.
Each saddle features a central locking screw which when loosened allows the saddle to be rotated to the correct intonation point for the string gauge being used, once this is achieved the screw is locked back down creating a solid mechanism that transfers all the string energy into the body.
To once again retain that classic tone as closely as possible the WT3 saddles are the same dimensions as the 50’s original saddles on the string seating areas, and manufactured from 360 half hard brass for a full vintage tone.
The WT3 is the ideal replacement bridge for any classic T style guitar bringing perfect intonation to your instrument and removing those frustrating out of tune chords associated with the 50’s bridge saddles.
It’s also the ideal T style bridge for any modern guitar build or guitar kit upgrade, producing all that great tone that is associated with the original 50’s bridge.
One thing to note of course is only a correctly made T bridge pickup can get that full magnetic flow going, which is why we recommend checking out our range for that vintage or modern correct construction.
