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

Excellent

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

Nice!!

I have an older Takamine elec/acoustic. With a little shaping & sanding, it's like I have a brand new guitar. The tone is rich & creamy now!!

Vintage Bone Saddle

After finding, cutting and shaping a piece of bone by hand, the pre-shaped vintage bone saddle was worth every penny. Very few adjustments were made and great quality.

A little extra

I'm no luthier but I can work with my hands some so I decided to change the plastic saddle on my Martin to bone and take advantage of a tonal increase. After some shaping and sanding, I fitted the saddle in the bridge just right. After some minor adjustments and bone end pins, the Martin is as sweet as new.

Perfect

What's not to like? With a little judicious slotting and some eyeballed compensation, I now have a battered old Martin DX1 with the same string spacing at the bridge as my OM-28V.

This is a very inexpensive way to upgrade and improve your instruments tone

Great quality material, easy to work with and reasonably priced. Once you replace your old “plastic” Saddle with Bone you will notice an increase in the sustain and volume of your instrument. Don’t settle, use bone!
