The Guthrie Govan Suhr Signature Model which is equipped with String Saver saddles.
"A set of String Savers has subsequently taken up permanent residence in my main Suhr guitar - the Signature model. The tone hasn't suffered at all, and I seem not to be breaking strings any more, so it's a hearty "thumbs up" for your most resplendent product." - Guthrie Govan
