WHY CHANGE YOUR SADDLE?
No matter what type of stringed instrument you have, the saddle is one of the most important parts of the overall performance, playability and tone of your instrument.
The effect of upgrading this small part will have an amazing effect on the health of your instrument.
Graph Tech precision molds and engineers its saddles to create the most consistent tone and string balance, as well as precise string spacing to create the perfect piece for your instrument.

TUSQ produces more harmonics in the mid and upper range of the guitars. TUSQ saddles have harmonically rich tone, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone or other natural materials. Bone and Ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ has been designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the strings to the guitars body.
GUITAR / BASS / BLANKS / CLASSICAL / UKE / MANDOLIN
TUSQ DELIVERS THE OPTIMUM FREQUENCIES FROM THE STRINGS TO THE GUITAR TOP, PRODUCING RICHER AND FULLER TONE.
Guitar makers and players agree...acoustic guitars come alive with TUSQ man-made ivory. TUSQ is simply more efficient at transferring vibrations to your guitar top, resulting in big open lows and clear bell like highs.
Bone and Ivory nuts and saddles have one inherent problem - they're made from animals, and therefore are inconsistent in their growth causing soft or dead spots because of their natural grain. TUSQ nuts, saddles and bridge pins are precision engineered under high pressure and heat, specifically to govern which frequencies are transferred to your guitar top (tone), and which frequencies remain in the strings (sustain). TUSQ is made from 100% organic polymers, contains no oil or animal by-products and is consistent from piece to piece, and within each piece. TUSQ offers you harmonically rich tones without the problems associated with natural materials.
HOW DOES IT SOUND?
TUSQ delivers a rich tone, crystal clear bell like high end with big open lows and a significant increase in harmonic content and harmonic sustain. Increased harmonics equals more richness and character in your tone. Its the difference between a four piece choir and a twelve piece choir singing every time your play a note.
They are now used in instruments from Taylor, Gibson, Tacoma, and many other manufacturers.
