Softer than bone, and files easily. Micarta is an excellent synthetic bone substitute.

Specified by Martin for nuts and saddles since the 1960s. Ivory in color and a bit softer than bone, it files and sands easily and gives a uniform tone. Its uniform density is ideal for use with undersaddle transducer pickups. Each blank has a flat bottom surface; shaping and slotting required.

What a difference a nut makes

Curious as to how much difference a saddle makes, I used a Micarta saddle to replace the broken original plastic one on an old Silvertone acoustic. I didn't think it was worth all the extra work of making a saddle for this guitar...until I played it. Very dramatic improvement in tone.

Back to bone for me.

Not great. Its tough, hard to file. Clogs up the files way too much. Didn't like it at all. Ho hum. Back to bone next time.

Fantastic product

I find these easy to cut and file yet durable. String sustain is excellent. This size also works for Fender Strat nuts because of its 1/8 inch thickness. Each saddle can yield 4 nuts.

Worked great

I got this to make and replace the plastic saddle on a learner guitar for a friend. You want to talk about a difference! It was easy to work with and defiantly improved the sound of the guitar. Thanks!

Quality Supplies!

Micarta is some interesting stuff! Hard as all get out and works well for most players. I use bone for the real heavy hitters though because it wears less.

Saddle Sizes

This material is great for saddles, however a ukulele builder has to waste much of it. The ideal size for us would be 3 X 0.125 X 0.25 inches.

My several purchases

All of the purchases of the past several years have been very pleasing. The best has been the high quality of every purchase. Also, your response when I ask for your help on a guitar problem. Your staff is really helpful. I am so proud to have found Stewmac, which, now was several years ago. Robert (Bob) Hardison.

Micarta Saddle

picked these up for some nylon string basses I'm making and they work GREAT. The first went on a 41.5 scale slap bass and it's easy to shape and resonates really well. Perfect for my purpose. The saddle has a piezo pickup under it in the homemade wooden bridge and it really transmits the sound nicely to the eq system. Nice clear tone for days. Next up is a 25" short scale bass and I can't wait to hear that one. A+++
