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

      Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Oversized Guitar Saddle Blank:

      The saddle blank was of the usual great quality expected given my past experience with GraphTech products. Very easy to trim and shape to the desired form for the classical guitar I used it on. Didn't notice a remarkable difference in the sound of the guitar. The Musician's Friend description entry for this product had the wrong thickness listed. It is indeed 1/8" thick, not 3/16".

        Works nicely

        By S Manuel-wpFiE

        from Eden, NC

        Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Oversized Guitar Saddle Blank:

        Let me start by saying when it comes to my tone I am picky and unsatisfiable. I bought one of these to make a saddle for a Gibson Song Writer Deluxe 12 String that had poor string to string balance with the factory installed LR Baggs tranducer. While unplugged the tone improved a slight bit (a tad brighter). But...the tone improved big time when I plugged it in. The bass from the low strings sounded bigger and the highs from the trebble strings became more chimey. I got the bottom nice and flat by sliding it back and forth over sand paper on top of a glass table, now the string balance is perfect which makes a huge difference in the sound. This little piece of TUSQ made my guitar sound like a studio worthy guitar when plugged in no kidding ! This is one product that actually does what it says!

        Great Upgrade to My Beater

        By jgraham140

        from Mount Berry, Georgia

        Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Oversized Guitar Saddle Blank:

        I upgraded the plastic saddle on my inexpensive Rogue acoustic with a TUSQ saddle. Carving the 1/8" blank to the proper shape and height wasn't difficult. This TUSQ saddle virtually doubled the volume of this guitar, my beater and camping guitar. It also improved the tone (fuller and richer). I also replaced the pins with TUSQ pins. In contrast to the saddle, the pins didn't change the volume but evened out the string-to-string response. The saddle had the biggest impact.
