Unbleached Bone Saddles


Read 47 Reviews   |   Write a Review

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.

Stewart-MacDonald is your source for quality bone!
Bone is traditionally favored for quality instruments.

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 vintage-look unbleached bone saddles are available with B-string compensation too, so you'll save even more time! Minor trimming and height adjustment are usually all you'll need to do.

"These pre-radiused saddles save me LOADS of shaping time. Bone is my favorite material for great tone, too."
—Erick Coleman, StewMac tech advisor

Back in the saddle again

This saddle gives superior tone. It was pre-radiused, and with a minimal amount of work, it fit the slot, and what a tone!!

Vintage bone for Vintage Alvarez

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

saddle blanks

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

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.
