Combining the microscopic lubricant technology of String Saver with the classic look of steel.

String Saver Classics Strat & Tele 2-1/16" Spacing are a unique combination of materials made to enhance tone and dramatically reduce string breakage.

How do they work?
Each String Saver Classic saddle insert, is impregnated with Teflon, the slipperiest substance on earth. The Teflon in String Savers eases the grip between the saddle and string, spreading the stress over a greater portion of the string, just enough to drastically reduce string breakage. Teflon is 500% more slippery than graphite and is impregnated throughout the String Saver material, so its lubricating properties will never wear out. For string breakage reduction the difference is dramatic. Strings that last and last, no matter how hard you play...we guarantee it! Imagine how you would play if you didn't have to worry about breaking strings.

What do they sound like?
String Saver Classics are designed to preserve the original classic sound of your guitar. But, don't be surprised if you end up playing and sounding better when you don't have any more fear of breaking strings.

· Reduces string breakage
· Keep the original look of steel saddles
· Keeps the original tone of steel saddles
· Super lubricating
· Improves tuninging Saver Classics are designed to reduce string breakage yet retain the same look and sustain as regular steel saddles.

      Upgraded my chris shiflett telecaster deluxe with the 2 1/16 chrome saddles. Still retains the zing of the bent steel saddles, but mids and lows don't fall off as fast, hence more sustain. For the D and G stings I replaced the grub screws with 4-40 3/8s (comes with 5/16's) to give the screws a little bit more grip on the saddles, though I don't know if that was necessary, but it made me feel better and homedepot online sold them for 25 cents a piece so why not?

      Overall, an easy beneficial upgrade. I wish they all could be this easy.

      I just purchased a set of these in chrome for my Blacktop Stratocaster and I am quite pleased. The quality was the first thing I noticed when handling them. These saddles are extremely solid and the beautiful chrome finish really matches the hardware on my guitar while giving the bridge assembly a more sleek and modern look. I wanted these because I figured they would provide more comfort for my hand since I do a lot of palm muting, and they did just that. In terms of sound, I notice only a slight increase in sustain, but the strings definitely sound much more articulate now. These are a vey worthy upgrade for any Tele or Strat.

          Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classics Strat & Tele 2-1/16" Spacing:

          Better intonation. more comfortable than the stock saddles. Be aware though, anything you put in the path of the string, be it bridge, nut, saddles, what have you, will change the sound. The Graph tech originals really changed the sound of my Telecaster Deluxe too drastically, however their steel saddles with just the graphite materiel in the string path retained most of the original bite of the guitar. I feel it did boost the mid frequencies with pleasing effect. The intonation and comfort factor I felt was worth the trade. To me the whole guitar feels more stable/solid. All in all I'm pleased with the upgrade.

                      I replcaced the bent steel saddles with these on a tele. I prefer these a lot more as I think they sound better and string doesnt move around while bending string.

                                I purchased a used Stratocaster that had black saddles (same make), they performed great but took away from the look of the white strat.
                                These chrome saddles look great!
