This is a fixed bridge and will most likely have 7.25" radius since this was designed when Fenders had a 7.25 radius.

From the Bigsby site: "As consumers often desire the possibility of personalizing their instruments to fit their own vibe and playing preferences, there are benefits to both styles of installations. If the player desires to keep vintage look and integrity by using the shim and a single saddle floating bridge, the shim adds the perfect height (3/16”) and pitch angle for the neck. As this process includes an additional contact point of wood and aluminum, the tone of the instrument changes. Many suggest it adds sustain and a shimmering top end. If the player chooses the vintage look of the B16, but wants a modern 6-saddle body-mounted bridge, no shim is needed. The use of a 6-saddle bridge allows for individual string intonation, different saddle material choices, and a more traditional “woody” sound as the neck joint is wood on wood. These two installation options offer the player the perfect opportunity to make their Telecaster unique to their creative mind!" It appears as though use of the shim is optional.
