    No screws, Saddles not notched

    By RICHARD ANTONUCCI

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Gibson ABR-1Tune-O-Matic Saddles:

    I've used string savers on my strats and they work great. Better sustain, less string breakage.
    I purchased a set of these saddles for my Gibson ES-359 with ABR-1 bridge. Two of the saddles broke while installing with finger pressure only. I noticed that the saddle screws were slightly bent on the two that broke. I ordered replacement screws and another set of saddles. Much better !! I notched the saddles using an Xacto knife and a triangular jeweler's file. Installation and setup was relatively easy. Just remember it's graphite and not brass or steel, so be careful !! If the saddle doesn't fit without pressure you probably have a bent screw. Would have rated these higher if they came with replacement screws and were pre-notched. That said, they work great after installation and setup.
    My guitar now has improved sustain, stays in tune, and no more string breakage despite radical bending. Big improvement over the original Gibson ABR-1.
    Hope this review was helpful.

    I had these put on my guitar a few years ago. They have greatly reduced the amount of strings I break! I LOVE THESE THINGS.

    Not sure about these...

    By Guidrummer

    from Cumberland, MD

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Gibson ABR-1Tune-O-Matic Saddles:

    I bought these a little ways back. I finally had an opportunity to install them on my guitar. I got one on no problem. I then started to install the second one, but when I started tightening the screw (just finger tightening with very little pressure at this point) it flat out broke. I had barely gotten any of the screw through and the corner broke off! Perhaps that one was just defective seeing as I did manage to get another one on without much trouble ... I don't think I'd buy these again though ...

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Gibson ABR-1Tune-O-Matic Saddles:

    these things are life savers. i used to break strings all of the time, but after i put these in i never break strings. seriously, i haven't broken a string in over 6 months, and i play hard and for at least an hour every day. i'm putting these on all of my guitars.
