I recall watching one of the Eric Johnson hot lick lesson tapes, where he explained the benefits of having a brass saddle on the high E. Didn't appeal to me at the time, but now I'm curious to give it a try..

My only question is where can I find these for sale? I've searched nearly every online guitar parts stores (StewMac, AllParts, Warmoth, GuitarFetish, Ebay, etc..)

By the way, I want the vintage style "bent" type of saddle as pictured here:

^ The unplated "raw deal" saddles that guy sells is exactly what I'm talking about! Thanks

Hopefully, I can message him and have him just sell me one..
