OVERVIEW

Reduces string breakage thanks to Teflon coating that eases the grip and stress while your play.

Graph Tech's String Saver Saddle for Tune-O-Matic Nashville Post 2000 Gibson is made with 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 will last and last, no matter how hard you play.

What do they sound like?
Metal saddles have a pronounced 2kHz treble spike that dominates the tonal spectrum. Like all the String Saver Originals from Graph Tech, the String Saver Saddle for Tune-O-Matic Nashville Post 2000 Gibson has a more balanced tone with sizzling highs, full mids, and big, open lows. You will also notice an increase in sustain by up to 25% over brass saddles and 15% over steel.

String Saver Originals are made entirely of Graph Tech's String Saver material and as described above will give you a more balanced tone than steel saddles. On first listen, some people believe that the top end has gone away. However, once your ears get used to the new sound, you'll start to hear all the added harmonic content that String Saver saddles reveal. All that's missing is the 2kHz spike, but what's added opens up a whole new world of sonic possibilities!

        Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Saddle Tune-O-Matic Nashville Post-2000 Gibson Set:

        M/F doesn't stock the right ones for my Epi dot deluxe (bridge stamped B2). They were great about taking them back and even paid return shipping. I've bought a lot of stuff from M/F even back when they were just starting out in Northern California and have seldom been disappointed.

          Are you breaking strings at the saddle? This is the fix. I put them on my Epi.Wildcat and it sounds better and no more poping strings.I was breaking the high E no more! Check your intonation and string height after you install them.

                Put these into my Epiphone Les Paul Custom. Love them so far. My guitar is staying in tune better than ever before. I was a little cautious because I'd read that they can kill your guitar's tone. Did NOT do that for me. Sounds better than ever. Harmonics still going strong and the sustain is fantastic. I didn't get these to avoid string breakage, I got them for tuning stability and sustain and they delivered on both accounts!

                Amazing. Never Had a String Break Since!!

                Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Saddle Tune-O-Matic Nashville Post-2000 Gibson Set:

                I have an Epiphone Les Paul Standard and was having problems with the strings breaking at the bridge all the time! I bought these Graph Tech Saddles and have literally never had a string break since. I didn't even expect them to work this well! I haven't changed my playing style or strings, either. If anything, I play even harder now!
