Graph Tech

Made with a unique combination of materials made to enhance tone and dramatically reduce guitar string breakage.

The Graph Tech String Saver Barrel Saddles (PS-8108-00) are superior replacement saddles for Fender Mustang, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, Jagstang electric guitars. These guitar saddles are made with a unique combination of materials that enhance tone and dramatically reduce string breakage.

How does the Graph Tech String Saver work?
A string rests on a metal saddle that binds and locks the string in place. As the string vibrates, it is stressed on a very specific point producing metal fatigue and then string breakage. Each Graph Tech 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. Use the String Saver barrel saddles for guitar strings that last and last, no matter how hard you play&hellipGraph Tech guarantees it!

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

        Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Saddle Barrel for Mustang, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, and Jagstang Electric Guitars (Set of 6):

        I have tried just about every type of saddle that are available for the Fender models that use the "Jazzmaster" bridge, including the Warmoth modified bridge for Mustangs. The original saddles had a string "jumping" problem, which this high tech saddle seems to solve, so far. They improve the tremolo function and make a difference in sound quality. I have several different Fender and Marshall amps that I use to evaluate sound quality and I could tell that there was a difference. These replacement saddles are a good way to upgrade any Fender Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Mustang, Jag-Stang, that employ the original style of bridge. with the Fender designed tremolo.

          Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Saddle Barrel for Mustang, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, and Jagstang Electric Guitars (Set of 6):

          Finally after spending money a Buzz Stop and Warmouth Bridge which only help somewhat, I ordered these Graph Tech Saddles and my Jaguar can to life with brightness and sustain,tuning is so much better.Strings don't jump out of saddles, I recommend using at least 10's or 11's and you will be amazed.A good setup should be done when changing gauge of strings.

            Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Saddle Barrel for Mustang, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, and Jagstang Electric Guitars (Set of 6):

            This add on improvement will take the guess work
            out of the vintage bridge adjusting. Once installed
            the strings will ride in their own groove, thus,
            preventing string jumping, rattling, and or moving
            side to side. Intonation and string heigth can be
            easily set with included allen wrench. This would
            have been a great inclusion from the factory when
            they built the guitar originally. IMPROVED TONE!!

                The stock saddles sound great, but they are too small to allow you to adjust the bridge so that it is usable. Rather than converting to a Gibson style tailpiece which won't allow the tremolo to work very well, these saddles are larger and have a single, centered track for the strings which allow the tremolo to work beautifully. Much better and cheaper than a complete overhaul.

                      I got these because the stock units on my Jaguar didn't have individual height adjustments. They are a little more narrow than stock they can move around, all the string notches are the same size as are the barrels themselves but none of that is a problem, they work fine. They do change the sound though, more mid maybe and a tad more lows and definatly not as bright which on a Jag is not necessarily a bad thing. No worries, it still has plenty of chime. With these and a Buzz Stop installed there is much more sustain but the ringing overtones of the strings behind the bridge, which many people like about the Jaguar, are reduced quite a lot but for me the guitar is more usable in general without so much metalic sounding brightness and overtones. A 250 K volume pot helps also if, like me, you don't have time onstage to change your EQ settings when you change a guitar. A little spendy but worth it. Plus you get the little wrench that works on Strat saddles as well.
