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.

"TUSQ nuts and saddles have improved the sustain and clarity of our guitars. We now use them on all models." —Bob Taylor, Taylor Guitars

All I can say about this material is drop it after dropping plastic and bone and you will be sold for life, it is HEADS AND SHOULDERS above anything else I have ever used.

Nice Saddle fit in my new Gibson J 200 nice, easy to file down to size. Use a piece of glass with some 220 grit paper to get flat as can be and pick up worked fine.Get 2 one for say 13s and one for 12s.

Great saddle great price and fast fast shipping

Thanks StewMac

Easy to work with

The Tusq material is easy to work with. It files and cuts easily, but is hard enough that it can be fine fitted with 400 grit sandpaper. No unpleasant burnt bone dust smell, either. The tone was improved over a bone saddle that had been shimmed. Installed in a high end Ovation acoustic guitar.

Just installed these into my acoustics. Very impressed with the fit and finish of these products. They needed very minor sanding to fit but fit like a glove. Tone is much improved! thanks stew-mac and tusq!

It required some filing to fit right but that's to be expected. Good quality and it sounds fine.
