I love this thing!

The saddlematic is a great tool that can be used to set the intonation quickly and easily. I especially like using it to check the intonation on guitars in the shop for repair and to duplicate the intonation from a great guitar.

Narrower Frets Not A Problem

The correct way to use the tool is to place the fret block (shorter, slotted aluminum block) in contact with the edge of the 12th fret closest to the nut, set the saddle block flush with the face of the nut/end of fretboard. Then reverse the tool and place the fret block in contact with the edge of the 12th fret towards the saddle. This eliminates any issues with narrower/wider frets.

If the instructions are followed, even narrow 3/32" saddles will provide adequate room for compensation. With wider saddle, make sure to follow the instructions on offset to the face of the saddle.

Great visual for customers

Ever get the customer who complains about intonation issues? Sometimes a bridge is glued on the wrong area and this tool shows exactly what's going on and will sell you on a big repair.

no good for thinner frets

If the base block does not fit nice and snug on the fret then this tool looses its usefullness. I found this out building the stew mac tenor uke kit. If the base block fits firmly on the fret, then this tool is great.

Time saving and precise

This is a very good tool that allows you to locate precisely the bridge location. You can live without it but if mine will get lost I'll buy another one. Recommended
