TUSQ Saddles

TUSQ Saddles

Man-made ivory from Graph Tech, for enhanced tone and sustain.

Available in convenient ready-made shapes and sizes, TUSQ® bridge saddles are preferred by many acoustic guitarmakers for rich tone and sustain. TUSQ is an advanced polymer that's formed under high heat and pressure for uniform density. It's designed to transfer string energy more efficiently, to make guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain. Final trimming required; please measure your bridge slot before ordering.

Great saddle, shipping cost was ridiculous!

By

Verified Buyer


The TUSQ saddle sounds great after some shaving down but the shipping was a little ridiculous at $10 for two tiny saddles. Could have been placed in a standard envelope for the price of a standard stamp. Will not give the product a bad rating due to this issue.

Fit my Yamaha perfectly and easy to set up.

By

Verified Buyer


I had some intonation issues on my Yamaha and, seeing that the neck and frets looked reasonable (to me), bought this saddle. It fit perfectly and setting the height was easy, just sanding the bottom a little at a time.

New Saddle, Old Guitar!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought a new TUSQ Saddle from StewMac to see if I could improve the action / sound on my Fender acoustic guitar. After doing some sanding to reduce the height of the saddle, I also had to sand the thickness down just a bit, the guitar plays and sounds so much better!
Tip: before you order, check the guitar model to get the exact dimensions, so you can order the right size.
Thanks StewMac!

High action Yamaha acoustic is now a slide instrument!

By

Verified Buyer


A dear friend gifted me a sweet sounding old Yamaha, about 40 years old. the action is really high, probably not worth a neck re-set.I purchased a Grover nut extender from Stew Mac. It installed perfectly. I then realized my B string was buzzing at the nut. the nut had been lowered so low that even the extra notch under the bridge pin was not enough to give it enough angle. This Tusq saddle dropped right in and the intonation seems perfect. The tone is really nice for slide!

I have built a UKE, a MEGATAR, and an ACOUSTIC GUITAR, and bought "everything" from STEWMAC. They had "everything" that I needed. All items were delivered in a timely manner and all met my expectations. I had one (1) small item that I did not recieve and they sent another at no charge. I have a membership for 1-year that gives me free shipping with other benefits. I am a satisfied customer.
