If you have a high quality acoustic or vintage guitar, you owe it to yourself to hear the difference a TUSQ saddle will make. Compared to standard materials, you'll hear crystal clear bell-like high end, big open lows, and a noticeable increase in overall sustain.

TUSQ saddles are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body, and have been proven to increase a guitar's harmonic sustain. Acoustic guitars come alive with delicate highs and big open lows!

TUSQ is far superior in sound and appearance to synthetics such as Micarta and Corian. The high levels of heat and pressure used in making TUSQ results in its exotic ivory-like appearance.

Join those who know great guitar tone! TUSQ is used by: Martin, Taylor, Larrivee, Gibson Acoustic Guitars, Tacoma Guitars, Ovation, Rick Turner, Garrison Guitars, Breedlove, Manuel Rodriguez, Rainsong, Carvin, Landola and many, many more.

TUSQ has quickly become an important tone performance tool for many guitar manufacturers, luthiers and playing professionals around the world.

Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain), throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top.

TUSQ saddles have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone and other natural materials.

      Good product if you are willing to spend the time and effort into sanding and filing down to fit your bridge as well as the action. It dose leave plenty of room for adjusting as high or as low as you want your action.Over all it is worth the time and effort for a higher performance of sound.

          I am using this on a Yamaha LJ6. Everything you've heard about Tusq saddles you can actually hear when you play. Breadth, depth and more harmonically rich. Strings 1-3 in particular. It's an amazing way to make every guitar better for very little--with one more aesthetic benefit that never seems to get mentioned: your guitar remains free of bone, which, if you recall, is an animal part.

                  This TUSQ saddle made a huge improvement in the tone
                  and general sound of my Takamine GS430S acoustic.
                  It fit perfectly in the guitar saddle slot and was
                  money well spent.

                  intonation is important

                  Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Acoustic Guitar Saddle - Taylor Compensated 1/8":

                  I got this item hoping to replace my Taylor 114ce Bridge. It took some sanding, adjustments, A little work and effort just to find out. its not the bridge that fits perfectly. Ive also tried everything to get it to fit perfctly and it doest.. Also the Intonation as off on the 2nd string. Its perfectly tuned in D and G but C and E chords are off. So its a turn off to me.. So 2 hours later i have a bridge that doesn't fix or sound any better then the one that came with...

                  Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Acoustic Guitar Saddle - Taylor Compensated 1/8":

                  Tried the Tusq bridge pins and was impressed by the subtle sound improvement to my Fender acoustic. Got this saddle expecting the same, but was largely disappointed. It did seem to add some bell-like trebles, but since my guitar?s already pretty bright, it just made it sound ?clangy.? What really irked me was that it seemed to dampen my mids, not much difference to the lows. Doesn?t add much to your tone, if anything, seems to detract. I suppose if your guitar has dead highs, then this might help, otherwise I wouldn?t recommend.

                  I am a believer

                  Used this to replace the saddle on my Yamaha FG735 and it change the tone in a very nice way. Volume is about the same to me, but tone is overall richer and fuller, specially on the 1st and 2nd strings, they now sound thicker. Heard many speculations on the web anout tusq latetly, now I am a believer. Give it a try, it is so inexpensive and easy to install, if you sont like it just install your old saddle back. Hope this helps.
