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 has been proven to increase the harmonic sustain of a guitar. 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 nuts have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone and other natural materials.

Note: All Graph Tech nuts and saddles are slightly long and wide to ensure extra room to achieve a perfect fit for your guitar. This extra material can easily be removed with fine grit sandpaper.

This is the wrong saddle for my Martin

Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Acoustic Saddle Compensated Martin 3/32":

I just purchased a Martin X1-DE and the guitar sounds great! The action was just a bit high for me so I decided to purchase the replacement saddle and sand it down 1 or 2 32nds to get it playing a little better. When I received the saddle, it wouldn't fit into the slot. In looking at the specs on the website, the ones on the package did not match. I called tech support and explained the situation as well as offering a suggestion on how to avoid shipping me the same one as a replacement. I waited over a week for the replacement and it was the same WRONG saddle. I went to Graph Tech's website and the one they sent (both times) is the one Graph Tech says should work, but it doesn't. I ended up using the original saddle and sanding it down. It is playing much better despite the frustrating path getting here.

Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Acoustic Saddle Compensated Martin 3/32":

Good quality. The compensation was more than I needed. I prefer the Taylor saddle TUSQ.
