tuning telecaster


New member

I want to replace the bridge on my telecaster and I do not quite understand one thing here in ACTION can somebody help me to understand it:

Telecaster® Setup Guide | Fender Support | Fender®

what it means String High Bass Side & Trible Side

for example if my neck is 9.5 I put the strings 6, 5, 4 on 1.6 mm and 3, 2 and 1 on same the height 1.6 mm... and not different heights for each? am i right or I don't understand something correctly?


Typically your bass string side height will be a little higher than the treble side to prevent fret buzz. Per that guide, with a 9.5" radius, you go with 1.6mm string height across all strings.
