I have both a Vintique bridge (1999 Am St Tele) and a Callaham bridge (parts-o-tele). Both are great, but Vintique is by far nicer. Heavier metal and the edges are rounded/smooth. Callaham edges are more "squared" and tend to irritate the meat of my palm. You can look at Callaham's images on their website to see how sharp the edges are.
I do like Callaham's "enhanced" saddles, which I use on both bridges. And I like Callaham's dull finish, just to be a little different than Vintiques mirror/glossy finish.
I don't know if one sounds better than the other. One guitar is Alder/Maple neck, the other is Ash/Rosewood neck. Different pickups too.
If both were same price, I would pick Vintique. If the extra $100 is too steep, I would go with Callaham. And, to respond to your actual post, both companies make the vintage style bridge to fit an Am Standard.

Yep, your tone will love you.
About half way down the the page.

Caveman, what that pickup in there?
