OK, count me as one of the converted!
I had been reading about all these people with with their bone nuts (sounds painful), saddles and pins.
I'm thinking, "how much difference can it make?". I had Taylors and they came with Tusq nuts & saddle. They sustained forever.
My SWD, which I've had since last summer, sounds great. Well, you know how it is, you keep reading over and over how great something is and you finally decide, "I want that
So my curiosity got the best of me. After some research, I decided I could install my own bone saddle. I went to Bob Colosi's website. People rave about this guy on the forum.
I had a look around and called him. Really nice and helpful guy and he's from my neck of the woods so we talked a little sports.
At this point I decided to only change the saddle as it seems this will affect the greatest change in sound.
A couple of days later the saddle arrives. Directions that come with it are very easy to follow.
I think it took less than a a half hour before I was playing the guitar with the new set up. I didn't change the strings as they are EXP's and not old, plus I got a better feel for a before/after comparison.
Really HUGE difference! Much more sustain. More focused and articulated sound. It brought out a richness in tone which wasn't there before.
Mind you, I loved the sound of this guitar before but it is much better now.
