High Performance Saddles that Dramatically reduce string breakage

"I like String Saver saddles because they save my strings from breaking...I've been using them now for at least 10 years, if not longer, and I've noticed a significant decrease in string breakage...I hardly ever break strings anymore. I'm so much a fan of the Graph Tech product that I'm actually going to be including them on my Signature Series Stratocaster that's coming out very soon. That's a good testament to the quality of the product".
Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Reprise Recording Artist

String Saver saddles are made with a unique combination of materials made to enhance tone and dramatically reduce string breakage.

A string resting on a metal saddle binds and locks the string in place. As the string vibrates, it stresses the string on a very specific point producing metal fatigue and then string breakage. Each String Saver saddle 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. PTFE is 500% more slippery than graphite and is impregnated throughout the String Saver material, so its lubricating properties will never wear out. For string breakage reduction the difference is dramatic. Strings that last and last, no matter how hard you play...we guarantee it!

What do they sound like?

Metal saddles have a pronounced 2 KHz treble spike that dominates the tonal spectrum. String Saver Originals have a more balanced tone with sizzling highs, full mids, and big open lows. You will also notice an increase in sustain by up to 25% over brass saddles and 15% over steel.

In 2005 I installed these on my '83 Standard Stratocaster and they are truly outstanding! Every claim made by Graph Tech about these saddles is 100% true. I am going to put them on my wife's Standard USA Strat as well.
