Bleached White Bone Saddles

Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
Bone's hardness and density contributes to good tone, it polishes well, and it allows more precise filing. Bone is traditionally preferred for making nuts and saddles on quality instruments.

Shaped saddles will save you a LOT of work—a head start for the novice, and a timesaver for the busy shop. The sizes have been carefully researched, and accurately radiused, so that minor trimming, slotting, and sanding are usually all you'll need to do.

Blank saddles have oversize length and height, for custom shaping in your shop. They're ready for trimming, filing, sanding and slotting.

I have been getting bone stock from stewmac for years, and I have never had a single piece disappoint me. That's the kind of consistency I wish everything in the world had!

Exactly what I was looking for!

I purchased this to replace the existing saddle in a Takamine F-370S "Lawsuit" acoustic. I was pleased that Stew Mac offered material with profiled top which eliminated a lot of work to attempt to match the old profile. After matching the profile along the oversized length of the blank the sides were marked & cut. The bottom was scored and cut, sanded to the exact dimensions of the old worn out saddle. Fits perfectly and sounds great.

Bone saddle upgrade

I always buy oversized blanks to make compensated saddles. Bad results from cheaper suppliers(China) so I only buy from American suppliers.

Good quality bone blank.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The blank I received was a perfect color match for the instrument I fabricated the new saddle for. While working the bone I found it to be a really good quality, being neither too soft nor brittle as I have encountered over the last 40 years or so. I also appreciated the fact that the density was such that I could apply a really decent polish to the finished product. I am very happy with the end result.
