Finding the Right Acoustic SaddleUpdated 6 days ago

Use the Graph Tech Catalog or website - www.graphtech.com - for reference. 

1. Start with the style of Acoustic Saddle you are looking for. On the Graph Tech website you can select in the filter section options like Compemsated, Blanks or Slabs

.2. On the Graph Tech website and in the Product Catalog saddles are sorted by length.


3. Scroll down until you find a length that is close. A little longer is ok, as it can be sanded

down for a nice flush finish with the neck.


4. Once you have the length, find the correct thickness, again. A little thicker is ok as it

can be sanded down.


5. Now, find the height you need, taller than you need is ok, as the saddles are meant to be

sanded down a little for final fitting. You will also notice some saddles are compensated.

This helps the guitar play a little more in tune as you play higher up the neck.

For example:

TUSQ Saddle: 1 packaged saddle = PQ-9200-C0

TUSQ Saddle: 1 bulk saddle = BQ-9200-C0

TUSQ Saddle: 10 packaged saddles = LQ-9200-10
