just curious as to whether the Takamine (upper line, santa fe, signature etc.) comes witha bone saddle installed btw is bone saddle more appropriate selection for one who plays country/bluegrass style??
didn't i just read this same thread on agf?

cheap plastic saddles tend to generate less string articulation and less overtones. it's possible that more expensive materials than the low end plastics do better. bone and fossilized ivory can add some volume, string separation, overtones and nicer highs than plastic. on the other hand, some guitars just sound better with tusq.
