Black TUSQ XL Acoustic Saddles
Why change your saddle?
A guitar saddle is designed to transfer the vibrations through the bridge into the top wood of the guitar. This quick and simple upgrade will have an amazing affect on your instruments tone, harmonic content, and playability.
Compensated saddles improve the playability by correctly setting each strings intonation to help produce the best tone and performance possible. Graph Tech produces a wide range of fully compensated, partially compensated and saddle blanks and slabs.
