Traditional tone with reduced string breakage!
For Strat or Tele with 2-1/16" (52.39mm) string spread at the bridge.

Replacement stainless steel saddles with embedded inserts of Graph Tech's super-slick lube-action polymer. Play longer and harder with less string breakage. These saddles have a traditional appearance and the tonal bite of steel.

How do the String Saver saddle inserts work?
Graph Tech has found that a slotted metal saddle can stress a vibrating string at a specific point, resulting in metal fatigue and eventual string breakage. The high-density polymer insert on a String Saver Classics saddle is impregnated with Teflon, 500% more slippery than graphite. Non-corroding self-lubricating action eases and spreads the stress just enough to drastically reduce string breakage, no matter how hard you play.

String Saver Classics saddles have been factory-installed by Fender and Tom Anderson Guitars.

Important: Measure your guitar's bridge saddles before ordering!

great upgrade to chris shiflett telecaster deluxe

the stock saddles that came with the guitar were second rate import bent steel. These fit perfectly. Improved tone. Left the high end zing of bent steel, but I got back the mids and the lows, which increased perceived sustain. Love 'em. Wow wow WOW. Made the guitar a keeper.

Top Quality

I just installed these on my ESP LTD ST-203 to replace the vintage saddles. Top grade material saddle, good sustain and very comfortable for palm muting. Also the classic retain the authentic strat tone. They are a little expensive though.

Excellent value

I bought these to replace the saddles on a VERY inexpensive Mexican made strat with a vintage tremolo and a fantastic neck. The old saddles were the vintage type and were REALLY rough on the muting edge of my right palm. My right hand is much happier now, the guitar intonated much easier and I'd wager this guitar now feels as good as any expensive American made strat. The $50 spent on these saddles was WELL worth it.

FYI, If you have a Fender that made in USA like American Vintage '62, then right spread for your guitar is "2-3/16" string spread". After install this saddles, couldn't feel much difference on the tone, but Piece in mind to forgot string break. I divide it to 3 & 3 and install my two fender for string 1~3. It's great.

The most embarrassing moment when you're performing on stage is when your strings break in the middle of a song. I put these saddle on, and since then, none of my strings broke. I surely swear by them. Thanks!

Awesome Quality!

Ordered these for an import type strat bridge. They fit perfectly and the quality is very fine. Tonal improvements too.

Nice product.

These saddles do what they say they will do, I did notice the difference they provide with saving strings... didn't notice much a difference in tone. The only issue I'd have is that having only one size of height adjustment grub screws can mean that on lowered saddles the screws can scratch the picking hand if like me, you often rest your hand on bridge.

I solved this by purchasing a set of 3,4,5 and 6mm grub screws and just swapping out as needed to keep them all flush with surface.

This did the trick!

I took a basket-case 2004 Squier Bullet Strat and used it as a test mule to see if I had any talent at working on guitars. I installed Fralin Blues Special pickups on it, Gotoh tuners, did a level & crown on the frets, carved a new bone nut, and, finally installed these saddles. Everything I did contributed to the improvement of this guitar, but the saddles took it from still cheap-sounding to sounding really nice. I'd recommend them to anyone who likes six saddles on their Fenders.

Everything except the pickups came from StewMac, including the tools I used. StewMac is a little pricey on some of its stuff but it's good stuff. My experience with them has been first-rate all the way through.

This really defines LONG LASTING

If there's a promotional claim that is going to be true, is this product's main proposition. These REALLY make you strings last longer!! and i mean LONGER...i wish string tone didn't die as time passes by!!
