Hummingbird saddle and nut sizes. in Epiphone Acoustics Posted December 10, 2009 · Report reply "There are huge variances between to guitars of the same model, you can't really use an off the shelf nut or saddle for guitars like you can other parts." Then how come Bob Colosi at guitarsaddles.com has several models that he sells and doesn't have to make for each guitar? I have a theory. There are tons and tons of Hummingbirds and Doves out there, maybe more than any model of acoustic guitar. If he makes 30 bucks for each one he makes one for, why would he offer a ready made model and sell it for 6 bucks? He can make a killing having Hummingbird and Dove owners send their saddles in and he makes 30 bucks a pop. Here's the point. I would gladly take a chance at losing the 6 bucks if he would send me a copy of a hummingbird saddle he made for someone else. He could make it a tad bigger and I could finish it until it fits. Why won't he do this? Again, maybe more Hummingbirds and Doves out there than any model of acoustic, and he needs to make saddles for each one individually, that could add up to a lot of money when you refuse to just make a standard saddle based one a one copy and let people take a 6 dollar chance at getting one that would fit, or maybe having to do a little sanding if he makes it a little bigger. What a bummer.
