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

String Saver Originals Strat & Tele 2-3/16" 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 2-3/16" Spacing:

      I have been searching for a solution to ice pick high E and B strings, and this is it. I installed 3 of the 6 saddles under only the unwound strings, leaving the steel saddles under the D, A and low E strings. The Graph Tech saddles reduce the sharp attack of notes played on the unwound strings, provide richer tone, sweeter harmonics and noticeably better sustain than the steel saddles that came with my Strat. Those qualities are, of course, what you seek in good distortion. Running into an OCD in HP mode and drive at 12 o'clock, they make my Strat absolutely sing. Now when I dig in with the pick, it no longer hurts my ears, it feels really GOOD!
