Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
Bone is traditionally favored for quality instruments. Our unbleached bone is harder than bleached white bone, and has a mottled cream vintage look. Its hardness and density contributes to good tone, it polishes well, and it allows more precise filing.

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

Pre-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.

Good news: our super-hard unbleached bone saddles are available with B-string compensation too, so you'll save even more time!

Vintage bone for Vintage Alvarez

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I changed the plastic saddle on my thirty one year old Alvarez dreadnaught and improved both tone and sustain. Product was very easy to work with and having it preshaped cut down on time it took to complete. This will not be the last vintage bone saddle I will buy.

great bone - great tone

I have bought several vintage bone nut and saddles from stew mac. I always buy the blanks so I can cut them to match the radius of the neck & bridge. The best bone for the tone I have ever used. Thanks Stew Mac

The ones supplied are big enough to make 1 of the 2 strips on the bridge where the string ties around. Maybe you could sell the tiny strips or sell the blank even wider.

Very Good Saddle

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These saddles need a little work to fit, but the result is a custom fit saddle that sounds great, earthy and balanced. Looks old and full of tone. All my acoustics are getting bone saddles and pins.

You get what you pay for, but I'm gonna start stealing bones from the dog to save some scratch...
