I've been using the String Saver Saddle with this guitar (in the photo) since 1996 or so and honestly I don't remember when I broke strings the last time. They really work!!

TUSQ Picks are another great product that Graph Tech has to offer. They are very useful especially when I double my acoustic guitar track using different TUSQ Picks. Also it is a really nice option for me to be able to tweak my tone on the fly just changing them on the gig while my amp and effects settings remain the same.” - Takeshi Akimoto
