Purchased two. .0890 - .095 thick x .375 - .3792 Tall x 3.1945 -3.1940 long. Almost always available in local GC stores. Cut compensated saddles for cheap guitars because precut compensated saddles available have the wrong radius for my instruments. Proline is slightly undersized to hit that 1/8" thickness. Anyone cutting a saddle for 1st time should watch a couple YouTube video clips 1st & just take your time. I have often slowly lowered height during the first few string changes to avoid taking a little too much off the height.

Too thin for my bridge. I'm not sure why they didn't make it thicker. You can always cut/sand it down to size as you already need to shape a blank anyway. I will fashion shims from the excess length until I have time to find a new saddle or shape one from a beef cattle bone.

Need more specs

By Gary

Verified Buyer

Comments about Proline Acoustic Bone Blank Saddle:

Definitely not 1/8", no specs on website. Thought Id give it a try before ordering from StewMac, and paying more for shipping than for the item.

Would fit Martin but not Gibson by a long shot. I'll keep it and use it for a "spacer" on my saddle sanding jig.

You guys really need more product specs on the web

                Comments about Proline Acoustic Bone Blank Saddle:

                This saddle blank is made from bleached oxbone and will improve your sound. Be smart and carve a compensated saddle and you'll have better results.
                Look for tips online as to how to get the height right as a gnat hair of thickness makes a difference in the action. A belt sander with medium fine grit belt and a dremel type rotary tool are almost essential....though I've seen really talented craftsmen make them with a piece of sandpaper and a pocket knife. Be sure to check the bridge slot for any shims and remove them first. A lot of factories are using these as a shortcut to properly fitting a saddle.
