Replacement Saddle Epiphone IB64


Recommended Posts



I find that the action on my Epiphone Texan IB64 is way too high while to tross rod seems to be OK.

I was thinking about sanding the saddle down.


But I would like to try first with a replacement in order not to "damage" the original one.

Do you know the factory settings for this piece? I only get to know is a compensated Tusq one but not the model (brand) nor size.


Has anyone tried to find a replacement for it? Any hint would be appreciated.

Truss rods should not be adjusted to correct the action anyway. They are for adjusting neck relief.


The saddle radius should match the fingerboard radius which I believe is 14" on the IB Texan.


But I guess I do not see why not just make life easier and sand down the one that came with it.
