Man-made ivory from Graph Tech, for enhanced tone and sustain.

Available in convenient ready-made shapes and sizes, TUSQ® bridge saddles are preferred by many acoustic guitarmakers for rich tone and sustain. TUSQ is an advanced polymer that's formed under high heat and pressure for uniform density. It's designed to transfer string energy more efficiently, to make guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain. Final trimming required; please measure your bridge slot before ordering.

Perfect

A perfect fit replacement, exactly as ordered. For some reason, sounds better amplified than the stock saddle in a Luna Dragonfly. It shouldn't but it does; maybe the bottom makes better contact with the under-saddle pickup.

Tusq Compensated Saddle

After removing the under saddle pick up I needed a new saddle so I chose the Tusq Compensated 1880. It was an easy install that took less than an hour. A very nice upgrade.

Did the job.

I needed to replace the bridge saddle on an Epiphone Zenith Bass as I'd taken too much off the original. I had to do some sanding to match the slot profile but it was an easy job. A perfectly flat base is required to sit flush against the pickup "wire" so as to avoid dead strings. This was easy to do with this material. Also the 14" radius matched the fret board perfectly. I'm now getting an even string volume and it sounds great.
