Too thin for my bridge. I'm not sure why they didn't make it thicker. You can always cut/sand it down to size as you already need to shape a blank anyway. I will fashion shims from the excess length until I have time to find a new saddle or shape one from a beef cattle bone.

Need more specs

Comments about Acoustic Bone Blank Saddle:

Definitely not 1/8", no specs on website. Thought Id give it a try before ordering from StewMac, and paying more for shipping than for the item.

Would fit Martin but not Gibson by a long shot. I'll keep it and use it for a "spacer" on my saddle sanding jig.

You guys really need more product specs on the web

        Comments about Proline Acoustic Bone Blank Saddle:

        It took me about an hour to sand and reshape the new saddle to match the old one, then I shaved the bottom down slightly for the lighter gauge strings I also purchased. Take your time and be patient. The material was very easy to shape and sand. I used 150 grit sandpaper to get it close, the 220 grit to finish it up.

        Comments about Proline Acoustic Bone Blank Saddle:

        I have a 12 string acoustical guitar. I wanted to go with a lighter gauge strings but the original bridge saddle would not alow the guitar to tune to standard tunning correctly. Looking at the original saddle, I noticed there were odd cuts made to it to accomidate medium gauge strings tunning. I removed this original plastic saddle, used it to make a template and created a new saddel out of the new bone material I ordered. I used a Demel Tool to cut and shape it and it tunes perfectly with light or medium strings and sounds beautiful.

              Comments about Proline Acoustic Bone Blank Saddle:

              This saddle blank is made from bleached oxbone and will improve your sound. Be smart and carve a compensated saddle and you'll have better results.
              Look for tips online as to how to get the height right as a gnat hair of thickness makes a difference in the action. A belt sander with medium fine grit belt and a dremel type rotary tool are almost essential....though I've seen really talented craftsmen make them with a piece of sandpaper and a pocket knife. Be sure to check the bridge slot for any shims and remove them first. A lot of factories are using these as a shortcut to properly fitting a saddle.
