Unbleached Bone Saddles

Unbleached Bone Saddles

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

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

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 unbleached bone saddles are available with B-string compensation too, so you'll save even more time!

Perfect saddle solution

Have an old guitar that had a flat bone saddle, but 10" radius frets. Had string buzz on middle strings. Replaced flat top saddle with 10" radius pre-shaped saddle, no buzzing now. Thanks!

good replacement on my Gibson L-00

The saddle is perfectly compensated- but it is longer than i needed.... think vintage long saddle and it does require removal of excess on both sides to accurately replace the existing saddle and line things up. It is also surprisingly "low" - I had to shim it.. turned out just fine :)

Unbleached bone saddle

By

Verified Buyer


Never had any issues with any of stewmacs bone products: nuts saddles or bridge pins. I prefer the creamy yellow colour on my guitars and being slightly harder than the bleached version is a bonus! It’s the only material I use for saddles and nuts.
