Ordered the Telecaster Ashtray bridge cover and slapped it on my 50's Telecaster. Immediately it added a sizeable amount of chrome, and befittingly covered up that exposed pickup and saddle, concealing its' primitive bridge assembly- which I think anyway does aid in cosmetically completing Telecasters. This now keeps the electronics under the hood and simplifies the overall appearance of this guitar. Only drawback is, that this cover doesn't seat as well at the base, as it does where it narrows and grabs on to the sides of the vintage bridge. Its a little rickety, you can hear it flop against the guitar, but it stays on there and completes the classic image. ~Works for me.

Didn't Fit

The ashtray did not fit until I bent it. It was a "vintage fit" piece for a 74 Telecaster.

Comments about Fender Replacement Vintage Telecaster Bridge Cover:

This thing sure makes a Telecaster look great - just like the pictures in the old Fender catalogs. You really can't play a Telecaster with it on 'cause it just gets in the way, but it pops on and off in just a second. When I hang my Tele on the wall, this thing is on for sure, when I start to play, I pop it off and stick it in my case!

              Genuine Fender pure vintage parts! made in the USA!
              mines chrome.
              fits right on my Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Telecaster Maple Fretboard Butterscotch Blonde, that I had purchased from musicians friend with the three barrel vintage bridge (only works on vintage bridge).
              I bought it for a dust cover and remove it when I play.
              really makes it look vintage and original fifties/sixties when I open or close my guitar case. LOL
              (I pressed a little on the sides of this cover with my fingers to made a slightly tighter fit but, I really didn't need to.)

                      I got a 52 reissue Telecaster used, and somewhere along the way the ashtray bridge cover that came with it had gone missing. I decided to rectify this abomination by purchasing an officially licensed Fender replacement. Listen: if it ain't made by Fender, I don't want it on my Fender guitar. Leo knew what he was doing! Anyways, this thing fits perfectly and has increased the panache and style of my instrument to a degree I would not have thought possible. The solid metal construction is indestructible, and the look of my beloved Telecaster is now complete. And it snaps off easily for unfettered playing, if you should so desire. As for me? I will leave it on and play my Telecaster the way Nature intended.

                          The bridge cover is finished nicely and looks great on my Squire CV Custom Tele. Unanticipated bonuses are that it actually shields the bridge pickup and significantly reduces its electrical buzz. Also, it changes the sound of the guitar by adding some sparkle, which I consider a plus. A negative is that you cannot mute the strings when the cover is on. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase, especially considering its reasonable price.

                              Decided to try these out again since I have a bunch of Telecasters. It fits all of them that have the vintage bridge plate with high walls. I'm starting to really like them. Remember, Leo Fender said we should use them.

It fits like a glove and gives the Tele an even sexier look! I can vouch that, at least for this particular Tele model, it fits perfectly.

                                        This item does complete the look of your Tele. For my playing that deals with a lot of picking it is perfect for resting my palm. Now the draw back is that it will scratch and make a light indentation on your finish. I cut a very thin felt and glued it to the very thin rim, it works very well.

                                            Its a vanity item to finish a tele with the vintage look but I also like it already because I pick amd strum above the cover anyway and it gives my hand a flat spot without damping the strings.

                                                      Since I do not palm mute, the ashtray cover allows me to play without long sleeve interference on the strings. The cover also completes the overall vintage look of my FSR Tele after replacing the standard MiM bridge with the vintage bridge and saddles. I had also replaced the "FSR Texas Special" PuP's with AlNiCo 3 Original Vintage.
