    NGD and ?'s

    A little while ago I posted here how I was lusting for a new drumkit and hardware. I was set on getting it when my tax return came in. Luckily for me my car broke down before I spent the money. Well with what scratch I had left I picked this up at my local Garbage-Go-Round.

    Nothing special just an LTD TE-202. It acually plays/sounds really good. I was especially surprised by the stock pups, good cleans and grit, great distorted tones.

    I like this guitar enough that I'm gonna upgrade it a bit. I'm getting locking tuners and new saddles. Now the question is do I want tusq or brass saddles and why? thanx fellas

    I never used brass saddles before but tusq saddles add a bit of bite and sound woody as well. Is there a particular reason you're choosing between brass and tusq?

    I'd say brass...a lot of bridge mass is key to a great tele tone.

    I've found that brass, being fairly soft, can cause the strings to bind up a bit. You may have better luck than I, though, but I'd go with the TUSQ.

    Oh shit, you're talking about saddles and not the nut. Go for brass

    I had the ST-203FR & it was a steal for the price, so I imagine your tele would be every bit as good.

    Does it have a clear coat over the distressed parts, or does it look legit distressed?
