String Saver Tune-o-matic Saddles

Play longer and harder without breaking strings! Reduce string breakage by installing super-slick String Saver™ polymer saddles in your Tune-o-matic bridge.

Microscopic "ball-bearing" lube action makes them more slippery than graphite. M3 x .5 thread, pre-slotted. Sets of 6.

Fits our Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge, and most Nashville Tune-o-matics on post-2000 Gibson® guitars.

Intonation screws not included.

GraphTech material is Boron PolyTrinate.

Tip: Slotting Tune-o-matic style saddles
Nut slotting files work great for metal saddles. Choose your file size as you would when slotting a nut: use the same gauge as the string, or a few thousandths larger. After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.

String Saver Tune-o-matic Saddles

(Customer's Reviews)

they were tricky to install... despite they were the right model for the particular guitar, they did not align properly and needed some filing and adjustment. Once in place, they did the job and solved the tuning problems

Entire installation took around 30 min , I was almost done when last saddle came apart , I glued it together just to play for awhile . After reporting problem to StewMac received new parts free of charge . Fantastic customer service. My nr 1 place for all guitar parts and tools


Great Product

(Customer's Reviews)

I wasn't having broken string issues so that's not why I installed these saddles in all of my Gibson Guitars. I only use the G,B,&E, string saddles in my bridges. Why, I like to cut the brightness a touch with these. Others use Nylon saddles but in my opinion Nylon is to soft of material. Delrin would be a better choice. I was going to machine my own saddles, however, I can't make them this cheap. No discernible sustain loss unless you play at extremely low volumes. What I do like about them is you can tailor fit these for height with a simple jewelers file. I would recommend these if your searching to achieve a darker bark from your Les Paul or SG. I play blues, in your face dark snarling solo's and these give me the tone I'm looking for. Yes, I do recommend this product.
