UPgarde to these SOON as i can...There worth the money...I need as much sustain as i can get out of this guitar. And these REALLY are nice to have.



Metal saddles have a pronounced 2 KHz treble spike that dominates the tonal spectrum. String Saver Originals have 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.

· Reduces string breakage
· Increases sustain
· Improves midrange depth
· Super lubricating
· Improves tuning
· Corrosion resistant

Before (cost at this point $3.00) YES, 3 bucks..traded a Kurt Cobain LP for it that i had 3 bucks in..Smile

After (Grand total-$56.00) Thanks to Rick sending me the Keys. That kept the money down alot. Im not adding in strings.

And that fact that the money to get this done was from part of my Ebay sales. So it ALL comes from Fleamarket buying and selling. I did this for years. IM BACK!
HAPPY project.
