Hi all,

I'm looking at getting some graph tech string saver bridge saddles for my Fender 50's classic strat. Are they any good. Is it worth the change?

Depends, are you having problems with strings breaking, or with bending.

If yours is an origional 50s strat, don't you dare change it.

Those saddles (tune-o-matic version) saved my trem...the tuning just wasn't holding without them. They are MUCH better.

So you're a triple-poster eh?

What's with all the multiple-posting today anyways?

But just spend the extra $25 ish dollars and get the ferraglides.

why the ferraglides?


They look nicer.

But yeah, I've been using a Graphtech nut (it's not a saddle, I know, but it's comparable) now for 6 months, and it definitely sounds good. I'm guessing you're using the normal stamped steel saddles, so you will lose some sparkle, and it will sound a bit more mellow, which is not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you are using the stock pickups.
