Fully compensated bone saddle for acoustic guitars, 2-13/16" x 1/8" x 3/8"
Does the job, but a little strange...
I''d never seen a compensated saddle in this configuration before, but I decided for the price, why not give it a try? Well, it didn''t fit my Washburn correctly (it was a little long and I wasn''t about to break out the Dremel), but I threw it in my nylon string classical and it''s wonderful. The intonation is slightly off on the highest strings, but I think that''s more likely due to my cheapo ''Angelica'' guitar than the saddle''s fault. The string height is nice, as it ''rounds off'' the middle strings very slightly, which I am used to for violin/viola. It took a minute to get used to, but immediately I was overwhelmed by the difference a piece of bone made compared to the stock plastic junk. It is noticeably brighter and I''ll be damned if the sustain isn''t better. The height is nice, I can even hit the highest notes without even a hint of buzzing or fret noise. I might try flipping it around at some point, just to see if the intonation is a little better for the highest two strings. Anyhow, a nice little purchase!Reviewed by: Nate DiDonato from North Wales, PA. on 2/26/2014
