Great Inexpensive Mod - FANTASTIC SADDLES!

Under the heading of teaching an "old dog - new tricks"... Bought a new American Std Strat from my long time Sweetwater Sales Rep, Chris McCown. He suggested some locking tuners and Graph Tech Saddles as an upgrade. To be honest I was a little skeptical... Locking tuners was an easy sale, but I NEVER ever really thought about my saddles? Played several gigs before I wrote this review. In short - these saddles are an amazing upgrade! How something so simple could make such a tonal difference is beyond me... My thoughts; these give a little more mid range - in a good way, and much better sustain. But here is the best part; I beat the heck out of this new guitar - actually trying to break a string on the last two gigs - nope, guitar stayed in tune, pulled strings all over the fret board, very little slippage; and no broken strings! Impressive! Best testimonial I can give; I am now placing these saddles in ALL of my upper end stage guitars for live performing. Thanks Chris / Sweetwater - keep the gear recommendations coming! - Guy

Was skeptical, now amazed

I play a highway one tele American, with a modded bridge to accommodate a bareknuckle humbucker. Bought the bridge on eBay. And after a year of playing the rust was getting bad and I was breaking strings almost every practice. Now with the graphite saddles.... Sustain increased, strings felt slinkier, bending is effortless. And didn't notice a loss in tone at all. It really turns any guitar into a professional level and allows strings to resonate to its full potential.

New saddles for my ibanez

Bought these to replace my stripped out saddles on my Ibanez RG. I was looking just repair 2 saddles never had in mind that these would take my low end RG to another level. Sustain and intonation as well as action all took a leap forward for $39 bucks. The guitar plays and sounds totally different in a great way. Graphite saddles are wonderful I highly recommend them. Hard tail RG guitars 2 1/16 worked perfect.

String saver

Often overlooked item but critical for guitar feel and tone. Theses saddles are great. No more broken strings!!!

great aftermarket saddles!

Replaced the stock saddles on an Ibanez RG321 hard tail and am extremely happy with how it turned out. guitar's tone is improved, and saddles were very easy to install. would definitely consider these in the future on other guitars.
