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

String Saver Originals 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? A string resting on a metal saddle binds and locks the string in place. As the string vibrates, it stresses the string on a very specific point producing metal fatigue and then string breakage. Each String Saver saddle 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!

What do they sound like? Metal saddles have a pronounced 2 KHz treble spike that dominates the tonal spectrum. String Saver Originals have a more balanced tone, with highs, mids and big open lows. You will also notice an increase in sustain by up to 25% over brass saddles and 15% over steel.

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

      These saddles virtually stopped all string breakage! I used to have huge problems with breaking strings, as I'm a heavy bender and use the tremolo bar a lot, the only time I break a string after using these is when the strings are so worn out, they sound bad anyway. They change your tone, but you can tweak the amp, and the gain in sustain is amazing! This is one of those few products that simply does what it's supposed to!

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

          bought these to replace my old rusty mim strat saddles. also switched to a black pickguard, black pickups, and black knobs (sunburst finish), so thought these would be a cool contrast with the chrome bridge- it looks really sweet. as far as sound, i cant tell a difference, and ive never had a problem with string breakage. the largest difference is in a situation where i'm palm muting, these have a much different feel, but i kind of prefer it i think. well worth the price.

            These saddles are really nice. They did change the sound from the guitar but with a few tweaks of the amp., no problem. They have a nice smooth feel unlike the old Mexi. Strat saddles. I haven't broken any strings lately and play it all the time. Beautifully made. Will put these on my USA Strat for sure.
            Well worth the money!

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

              I had these on a Strat that was stolen from me. Upon getting a new Strat I immediately got another set for it.

              Ive never really had much issue with string breakage on my Strat. I do notice my strings tend to last a little longer.

              I bought these mainly for the change in tone. They seem to smooth and warm up the tone. The strings seem to resonate a little better. Its not a huge gain but if that's the sound you're going for, every little bit helps.
