Micarta Saddle, 1/8" blank

Softer than bone, and files easily. Micarta is an excellent synthetic bone substitute.

Specified by Martin for nuts and saddles since the 1960s. Ivory in color and a bit softer than bone, it files and sands easily and gives a uniform tone. Its uniform density is ideal for use with undersaddle transducer pickups. Each blank has a flat bottom surface; shaping and slotting required.

Blank
4-1/8" x 15/32" x 1/8"
(104.78mm x 11.91mm x 3.18mm)

What a difference a nut makes

Curious as to how much difference a saddle makes, I used a Micarta saddle to replace the broken original plastic one on an old Silvertone acoustic. I didn't think it was worth all the extra work of making a saddle for this guitar...until I played it. Very dramatic improvement in tone.

Not great. Its tough, hard to file. Clogs up the files way too much. Didn't like it at all. Ho hum. Back to bone next time.

I got this to make and replace the plastic saddle on a learner guitar for a friend. You want to talk about a difference! It was easy to work with and defiantly improved the sound of the guitar. Thanks!
