I have ordered two sets of these for two separate guitars so far because of hardware failure on previous saddles. I notice the screws do not warp like those made from inferior metals.
I bought a FrankenStrat with a cheapo Floyd Rose tremolo on it. The saddles were different heights and wouldn't hold the strings. I considered replacing the entire tremolo, but I already spent more on the guitar than I should have. So I took a chance on just replacing the saddles. The saddles I got from StewMac were really nice. The pivot joint was real tight and the finish in black looked really nice. They were so nice I kind of wished I had replaced the entire Floyd Rose with StewMac's tremolo, because if these saddles are an indicator of the quality I'm sure that is very nice also. They were a bit shorter than the original saddles, but that was easily fixed by just raising the adjuster screws on the tremolo pivots. You can go online and buy an entire Floyd Rose "licensed" tremolo for what these saddles cost, but that's the junk that was on the guitar. Stick with StewMac. My only regret is that I didn't just get the entire tremolo from StewMac and replace the entire thing.
This was an excellent replacement for one of my faulty Floyd saddles that came on my 2011 Carvin CT. Nobody ships faster than StewMac.
These saddles were at a price that can't be beat compared to the original's replacement parts. But all that shimmers is not gold. I purchased and installed 3 out of the 6 saddles to replace the ones that were stripped . After two months of use they have started to crack and one is broken completely and is no longer usable, I have to say that i won't be purchasing this item again.
This package can't be beat. Amazing quality! Doing business with SM is a pleasure. As professional as can be.
I needed a set of replacement saddles for floyd so....where else would i buy them from???? This place is great, just placed another order for an intonation key...hopefully see that by Monday or Tuesday...I love setting up my own gear and Stewmac has something for every caliber of builder/artist when it comes down to his/her axe & gear for said axe(s)....Peace and Rock & Roll!!!
I ordered these as replacement saddles on my 2000 Ibanez S370DVF with TRS Tremolo. They fit great and seem to be much higher quality than original. Thanks for the super fast shipping as well!!!
These saddles are awesome. Exchanged them out with no probs. Built like a tank. I only needed a B string saddle. When researching I almost ordered one for $18.00. Remembering Stew Mac, I was surprised to see all 6 for a little over $20.00 and at a 14" radius which matched my neck perfectly. The processing and shipping was fast and packed well. I'm really pleased.
Thankyou for the new parts for my Fender Floyd Rose classic unbeatable price and my guitar is as good as when I first bought it back in the 90's Absolutely Stoked!!!
I've been a tech for 15+ years and replaced a LOT of Floyd Rose, and Floyd Rose style tremolos and parts. Thats just the nature of the beast, things wear out over time. These saddles are absolutely perfect and idiot proof. The pricing is unmatched and the customer service is second to none with Stewart MacDonald. If you need to replace saddles on a FR original, or licensed copy based on the original, these are the best alternative. Thanks StewMac! -Scott
