Highwood Contoured Vintage Saddles for Strat - Set of 6

About This Item

Better tone and no pain!
Strat® saddle screws have been shredding the picking hands of players since 1954. Highwood has redesigned the vintage saddle so the adjustment screws are out of harm's way while retaining the look of the originals. The use of better quality steel improves sustain, single note definition, and harmonic response.

This is one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" solutions!
On traditional Strat saddles, the height screws feed in (and adjust) from the top of the saddle, leaving them protruding out of the top where they inevitably shred your hands. On Highwood saddles, the height screws feed in from the bottom so they never extend over the top of the saddle—all you'll feel is the smooth polished bridge under your palm.

"As a fan of all things vintage I don't generally go for aftermarket upgrades because they often draw attention visually. These Highwood saddles will look right at home on your old Fender while at the same time improving the function, tone, and playability of your guitar."
— Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Hi,

These saddles are Made in Holland, just like my Smitty Custom Guitars and I use these on every trem equipped build, vintage or modern tremolos alike. Get some of these! Cheers, Eric.

So these are VERY well made saddles. The quality is outstanding. Springs are long enough to work properly. Check your high e & d saddles, if they are riding up to the screw on your current setup and you have crimped them, the Highwoods may not work for you. If you can use them they are definitely an upgrade.

Great stuff

I wanted to upgrade my guitar a few weeks back. I was aiming at some vintage kinda strat tone. At first I was focusing on the pickups and electronics. The saddles were the last thing on my mind. However, I can across this set of saddles on YouTube and thought to myself, hey maybe I could give it a go, together with the electronic upgrades

And after changing everything, the first thing I’ve noticed is how much more resonant my guitar is. It mustn’t have been other things except my new set of saddles. My strat was so much louder acoustically. And it has much more sustain and a overall fuller and brighter tone. Great upgrade you can do with a pretty cheap price.

I installed these saddles on my guitar and they really work very well. They finish off the bridge nicely also look better and are more comfortable than the original Fender parts,

No more shredded palm

By

Verified Buyer


These saddles allow for the saddle height screws to sit below the surface to create a smooth area for palm muting. Anyone can do this modification themselves. A worthwhile investment. I would recommend to a friend. Also StewMac is a great ‘all things guitar’ candy store.
