Saddles for ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridges

About This Item

A set of 6 brass replacement saddles for our ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge.

These saddles are supplied without notches, for custom string spacing in your shop.

We recommend ordering our saddle screws to match the M3 x .5 threads.

Note: These saddles will not fit Gibson ABR-1 bridges.

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.

Perfect for Epiphone ES-335 Pro with LockTone bridge

Verified Buyer


I bought these in nickel plating for my Epiphone ES-335 Pro and they fit perfectly, a direct drop in using the stock screws. Much better than the originals. Now I can set the string spacing to my liking and the guitar sounds a bit clearer.

tune-o-matic bridge replacement

Didn't want to mess with replacing the entire bridge, I just wanted to eliminate the buzz from the cheap pot metal stock saddles.These solid brass replacement saddles ring like a bell .If you file the string slots(yeah,they do need to be) with the correct sizes to match the gauge of your favorite strings,the end result will be increased sustain with no buzzing, and sharper intonation.

Direct retrofit for Epiphone bridges!

Great quality saddles that fits perfectly in modern Epiphone LockTone tune-o-matic bridges. I installed them in a 2015 Epiphone Dot Studio and not only they fit perfectly but they improved greatly that guitar tone and sustain.

By the way, the did NOT fit an Ibanez AS73 tune-o-matic, but Epiphone and Ibanez bridges are interchangeable, so you can buy a used Epiphone one really cheap and then use these saddles.

I bought these for a 42 year old Lyle "Dove" copy acoustic that has a tuneomatic bridge. They fit perfectly in combination with your saddle screws and made this guitar much more lively. Easy to notch with your files too. Thanks Stewmac for saving the day at a great price!

I ordered these (along with the suggested m3 x .5 adjustment screws) to replace the very worn saddles on a vintage univox LP. They fit perfectly.
