What are the String Saver and TUSQ Materials in Saddles?

String Saver Saddles

String Saver saddles are made with a unique combination of materials made to enhance tone and dramatically reduce string breakage. Each saddle has the String Saver which is impregnated with PTFE, the slipperiest substance on earth.

The PTFE 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.

Our patented String Saver Originals are made entirely of our String Saver material and give you a very balanced tone across the spectrum. People who were breaking one or two strings a night have contacted us after using String Savers and are amazed that they go weeks and months without breaking a string!

String Saver Classics are made with an extremely high quality steel saddle with our patented String Saver material inserted in the string ramp. String Saver Classics preserve the classic look of a metal saddles while freeing you from the problem of breaking strings.

TUSQ Saddles

TUSQ Saddles have a rich tone without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone, and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering the consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ saddles are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body.

    I thought I’d have to do some sanding to install but I dropped it right into my Gibson Hummingbird and it fit perfectly. The string height was perfect and I didn’t have to do any sanding. All I had to do was wind up the strings and tune the guitar. Sounds very nice as well.

    Great upgrade!

    My Takamine 12-string plays and sounds noticeably better with this new saddle. It fit perfectly with no adjustments. Way better than the original. Very happy with it!

    Awesome Saddle (PQ-9044-60)

    I love Graphtech acoustic guitar saddles and use them in nearly every guitar I repair or upgrade. This one was perfect for the upgrade of my '95 Ibanez Artwood AW-100. This guitar is one of the first production units in the Artwood line in Korea. My acoustic sounds amazing...Thanks!
