Saddles for ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridges

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.

top notch 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!
