Overview

If you have a high quality acoustic or vintage guitar, you owe it to yourself to hear the difference a TUSQ saddle will make. Compared to standard materials, you'll hear crystal clear bell-like high end, big open lows, and a noticeable increase in overall sustain.

TUSQ saddles are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body, and have been proven to increase a guitar's harmonic sustain. Acoustic guitars come alive with delicate highs and big open lows!

TUSQ is far superior in sound and appearance to synthetics such as Micarta and Corian. The high levels of heat and pressure used in making TUSQ results in its exotic ivory-like appearance.

Join those who know great guitar tone! TUSQ is used by: Martin, Taylor, Larrivee, Gibson Acoustic Guitars, Tacoma Guitars, Ovation, Rick Turner, Garrison Guitars, Breedlove, Manuel Rodriguez, Rainsong, Carvin, Landola and many, many more.

TUSQ has quickly become an important tone performance tool for many guitar manufacturers, luthiers and playing professionals around the world.

Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain), throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top.

TUSQ saddles have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone and other natural materials.

        Replaced original bone nut and saddle on both of my acoustic guitars and they really sing now! won't use any other parts except Graph Tech - Gibson uses them also - so what's good for them is good for me!!

          Really sounds good; just had to sand the bottom of it to get it low enough - truss rod adjustment is maxed out so had to lower the saddle - no big deal; turned a cheap guitar into one that plays good and sounds good!

          I really like the tone difference these made on my guitar. I replaced my stock saddle with these. Very nice.

          This was the only part I could find that met 2 of the 3 dimensions I required for my vintage Carlo Robelli; it was too tall. I had the tools to shorten it, and after only a few hours of filing, I installed it very easily. Once the setup was adjusted, it now sounds fantastic!
