Heyas,
Does this bridge work in American Standard routing on Telecaster bodies? It's in the Telecaster bridge section of the site.

Nope.  That is the Strat version which has different screw locations, so its not compatible with the Telecaster bridge route.    However that bridge is used on Fender's Cabronita Telecasters and probably some others.

Yes you can get it routed for that. There's a little confusion though as that's an "American standard flatmount" while there's also an "American standard tele bridge" and the two require different bridge routes.

I mean, since they are flush mounted, there is no routing involved...it's just where they drill the screw holes and string through holes.

But, everyone is correct.

The mounting screw spacing is wider on the latter.
