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 Pre-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 Pre-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 Pre-2000 Gibson Set:

I own a lower end Schecter Diamond series guitar that I love to play. It fits my hands like it was made for me. I use this guitar mostly for practice and sometimes on the road. In the last few months, I started to break an unusually amount of strings. I traced it back so the saddle where the strings seem to be breaking. I tried guitar lube and a light filing on the saddle, helped, but not much. Saw these at Musician Friends and thought I give them a try. Fairly easy install and the only thing I needed to do was to sand down each of the 6 saddles to seat them in perfectly (fine sand paper) Very easy to get the tuning and intonation done. Lit it up and let it ripped. Played almost 1.5 hours with sting bends and all and had not a string break. The guitar even sounded better. The upgrades (ie:pickups/saddles) are costing me more that I paid for the guitar. Sounding awesome now.

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

    I put these in the bridge of a Les Paul after installing some Burstbucker pickups and then everyone wanted to play it.... tons of compliments on the tone. A friend of mine that records borrowed my Les Paul for a month because of the gripping tone that just reaches out & grabs you. These saddles really reflect and it is noticed. Same thing happened with a Strat. I now use them on all my electrics. For the guy who got a saddle that snapped in half... just bad luck of the draw. I'm sure Graph Tech stands behind their stuff and would like to have known.

        I bought these to install on my flying v and when I did, the one for the g snapped in half. I would have been better off setting my $$$ on fire. I don't think I could get money back. I don't think I should trust these for live playing. I am dissapointed....
