  1. One to watch.. or bid on.. at least until the bidding gets ridiculous. :) https://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?ItemID=38552257

  3. Ok.. Update in case anyone is left wondering.. graph tech customer support FAILED! The 16" microbalanced tusq saddle was much too small in length for my Aj-200 and the "presentation" style pins from tusq were also too small. Nut was perfect size and it is installed and waiting for me to lower it. I went ahead and ordered the 3"tusq saddle (pq-9276-00) which is also waiting for me to custom fit. For now I will stick with the plastic pins that came in the guitar.
  4. Your current saddle is your guide.. measure it or hold it side by side with the replacement saddle or saddle material and mark it accordingly. Plenty of diy videos on this topic.
  5. Might be an obvious idea but... but I suggest if you have the guitar you measure it?

  7. I sure as heck wouldn't buy a 400.00 nut, saddle or pins nor that price for all 8 pieces .. no matter how expensive the guitar it was all going on. Btw you're on an Epiphone acoustic page.
  8. I agree with degradation of customer service in this modern day. And to my other reply, I'm not sure what "thing" you're referring to but I never said anything about price or cost being a factor. Believe me I am well aware of the limitations of over the counter (or worse.. internet) purchases. I wasnt expecting a pricey custom upgrade just the product the company tech assured me was the exact fit for my brand and model guitar..to FIT. Really my point I guess is a "pie in the sky" wish that a list or cross reference guide for fittment of products for more common U.S. and Asian guitars. Maybe like this forum have specifically Epiphone parts forum/list/or whatever.
  9. I know there are many brand names of new and used guitars in the world but IF I made and sold parts for acoustic guitars (for instance) I would KNOW what guitars my product or products fit! I called Graph Tech prior to punching in my debit digits on amazon, trusting the companys technical support, expecting I would get the correct part numbers for the specific tusq nut, tusq compensated saddle and tusq bridge pins for my AJ200/e vs. Boy was I wrong!.. The saddle And pins were wrong... all too small. I haven't received the nut yet as it came in the mail delivery after I left for work today BUT my expectations are extremely low I assure you! So.. I have an AJ200/e Epiphone as I stated, I do not want abs/plastic parts because if I did I have the original plastic parts and could use them if that was the case. I want a NEW exact fitting compensated saddle and NEW exact fitting bridge pins (white with black dots). I pray tech. support got the nut correct! Why can't it be simple?
  10. "I found this Kalamazoo in the back of a shed.".. Why doesn't this happen to ME.. I'm even from Kalamazoo! :( otherwise let me say.. CONGRATULATIONS you fell backwards into a treasure!
  11. I'm comfortable with installation and all.. but I was hoping to hear some reviews on these particular parts from actual customers of Graph Techs tusq microbalanced 16" radius compensated acoustic/electric saddle.
  12. https://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?ItemID=38182542 Exactly like this one.. but disassembled. Realistically I would consider trades or $200.00?
