First timer got it right

(Customer's Reviews)

My first attempt at building a guitar, got the bridge right first try only minor bridge compensation was needed...OMG it tunes very happy!


Works as intended and then some!

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this to help with two Martins that are in my shop that needed new bridges. This great tool made the job so much easier than my old use a long steel ruler method. After getting the two Martin bridges all finished, I was working on a custom "Strat" build for a client and was having some issues getting a GrapTech Floyd Rose w/Piezos situated in the proper area on the body. I repurposed the Saddlematic and used it to place the Floyd Rose bridge right where it should be. Piece of cake! Thanks StewMac!


Speeds Up The Process

(Customer's Reviews)

Got my Saddle-Matic a few days ago and used it right away. I had to replace the entire bridge on an old acoustic that belonged to a customers' Dad. When the Dad gave it to his son, he said it may never be playable again. With a new bridge, nut, and a set good up this old acoustic will be playable soon.
