    Shoot me a DM and I'll give you the dimensions and we can talk price.
    Agreed. The chrome most definitely has an effect on the tone. My saddles are milled (not cast like most others) from solid billet of the best quality brass alloy we could find. The raw material is VERY expensive and they actually require a good amount of hand work to finish nicely. I will do what I can for you on price since you're a fellow SD'er :-)

    Ah.. I didn't even read it, I just saw that they were chrome. That should work then right, .1mm bigger per saddle?

    Thanks, I'll have to look to see if they have brass as well.

    An ROC made Tagima TW55. The saddles I want to use probably fit Mexican and USA teles.

    No kidding, it's an extra .30 or .36 mm across the span depending on the math.

It's amazing what a few millimeters can do to throw off the entire instrument.
