PSA: Bone Adj Saddles

Recommended Posts

Philadelphia Luthier has bone adjustable saddles back after being out of stock for some time. This is a nice upgrade from TUSQ and an alternative to modifying the 60s ADJ saddles in efforts to improve the overall tone. I just ordered one for my '65 Everly to see if I like it over the rosewood bridge. I am not a fan of TUSQ so we'll see how bone works out.

Thanks grOOved - ordered one too. I like the ceramic that is in there right now, but it will be nice to have a replacement option like this.

My 1964 CS J-45 Reissue had a tusq saddle in its ADJ bridge. I liked it a lot, about 2 years ago because of what I read on the forum I tried Philadelphia Luthier's replacement bone saddle. Just to try it. Haven't taken it out and put the tusk one back in since and now no longer plan to do so in the future. The bone one is recommended as much as I liked the tusq one.
