"I depend on my Graph Tech StringSaver saddles and have at least 15 guitars fitted with them. Before I turned to Graph Tech, I would break strings regularly. Nowadays, I NEVER break strings. I play countless shows each year and Stringsaver saddles give me the confidence to play the way I want to play. They sound great too!" - Bobby Harrison
