Product Details

Bone's 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 preferred for making nuts and saddles on quality instruments.

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.

Blank saddles have oversize length and height, for custom shaping in your shop. They're ready for trimming, filing, sanding and slotting.

Came in slightly oversized, perfect for a nice tight fit after a bit of sanding.

These saddle blank come with a lot if spaces left. I was first scared about the size. But when they reach me, they are all oversize by a lot. So just order which that closest to yours. I had done a saddle for myself which compensated string by string. The quality is great. Give a little bit patient and it can be shaped easily.

Martin 3/32" on the thin side

By brians356 from Reno, NV
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, November 28, 2011


I agree with an earlier reviewer, the Martin 3/32" (.094") blanks, while nominally correct, are often a bit too thin for Martin slots, which can trend closer to .100" for some reason (they may widen slightly over time from bridge shrinkage.) The Gibson blanks are thicker (a bit too much!) than the nominal 1/8", I'd like to find the Martin blanks at .100" and dress them back down a few thou as required.

Saddle dimensions

By brians356 from Reno, NV
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, November 24, 2011


I have noticed, particularly with the #6031 blanks, the thickness is usually quite a bit greater than the already generous 9/64" (.140"), often .150". I know the last thing you want is an undersize blank, but the normal Gibson saddle is "1/8" or .125 - .130, so having to shave off .020" is a lot. I'd prefer the blanks to be limited to .135" max, and add an "extra thick" blank of say .150" for those oddball wide slots.

Consistent Quality

These blanks are always consistent, and the pricing is great.
