Built-in pickups give you acoustic tone from your Floyd Rose-equipped electric guitar.
Ghost loaded String Saver Classic Floyd Rose saddles are a drop-in replacement for Floyd Rose Original and licensed bridges. These guitar saddles come loaded with ghost acoustic pickups encased in Graph Tech's own String Saver pickup inserts, loaded into metal saddles. These saddles are just one component of Graph Tech's ghost modular pickup system. (You may want to order the Hexpander MIDI Interface, the Acousti-Phonic, or both together in one of Graph Tech's ghost Kits - SOLD SEPARATELY)
The Ghost System's String Saver Classic saddles for Floyd Rose let you get acoustic tone from your Floyd Rose equipped electric guitar when installed with the Acousti-Phonic, or use it as a MIDI controller when installed with the Hexpander MIDI Interface. Or the same saddle pickups can drive both modules at the same time.
All the Benefits of Graph Tech String Savers Classic Replacement Saddles
Custom-engineered piezo crystals are encapsulated in the String Saver insert that contacts the string in Graph Tech's patented String Saver Classic Floyd Rose saddles. The ghost saddle pickups have a natural compression effect, so you can play as hard as you want without overloading the input channel or experiencing the dreaded piezo "quack".
Replace your Saddles
Replace your guitar's bridge saddles with Graph Tech ghost saddle pickups and get rich acoustic tone from your electric. The ghost System's String Saver Classic saddles for Floyd Rose can be installed on most Floyd Rose Original or Licensed bridges (this does not include the Ibanez Edge Lo-Pro, which uses a different, low profile saddle). You will need to get slots machined in your electric guitar's bridge plate so the pickup wires can exit the saddles and run back to the control cavity.
If you are looking for a complete ghost loaded Floyd Rose style bridge, Graph Tech offers the ghost-loaded LB63, which makes for a fast and easy installation. Just take out your old Floyd Rose style bridge, and install the LB63 in its place.
Saddle Pickups are individually calibrated, and sets are precision-balanced, so you get even string-to-string output.
Keep Your Mags
Installing ghost saddle pickups on your electric guitar doesn't change your magnetic tone. Any improvement in tone is attributed to the harmonic-enhancing properties of Graph Tech's patented String Saver material.
For running your ghost saddle pickups straight to the 1/4" jack for signal processing outside the guitar, order the Passive Kit. This helps to impedance-match the saddle pickups to your amp, to prevent high frequency loss.
Don't buy another guitar for acoustic sounds!

Comments about Graph Tech Ghost Loaded Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):
I was pleased when I finally got my Piezo pickups, however, they DO NOT fit on a FLoyd Base without SERIOUS modification. While this is stated on the Graphtech site, it states here that they are a drop in replacement, they aren't. The spacing is too narrow on a OFR and the pickup wires need channels to be mounted in. The people at Graphtech are less than helpful and they don't stock replacement parts for those of us that got suckered into buying with false adverts. The product however works great when you buy the Graphtech Floyd that is already to go.
