No, it’s not a reference to that cover of Dancing In The Moonlight. Fender’s top-loader Tele bridge simply refers to the stringing method. Rather than a through-body design, the strings are anchored through the back edge of the bridge plate. The result is a slinkier feel to the strings and less punch to the attack of the note. Clearly, it works for J Mascis, so we’re not opening any cans of sustain worms here.
