Highwood Contoured Vintage Saddles for Strat - Set of 6

About This Item

Strat® saddle screws have been shredding the picking hands of players since 1954. Highwood has redesigned the vintage saddle so the adjustment screws are out of harm's way while retaining the look of the originals. The use of better quality steel improves sustain, single note definition, and harmonic response.

"As a fan of all things vintage I don't generally go for aftermarket upgrades because they often draw attention visually. These Highwood saddles will look right at home on your old Fender while at the same time improving the function, tone, and playability of your guitar."
— Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

The best S saddle out there

By


I'm so glad StewMac is carrying these! I've used them ever since they came out a few years ago or some.

I won't make any claim this saddle is a game changer, tone changer, life changer, etc, i.e. things forumite kool-aid drinkers say,,,But this saddle addresses some real problems with traditional S saddles.

For starters the notch is just a good idea period: string has a defined stay - good for bend stability .
The slightly thicker metal used is also a good for a better attack and added sustain.

Then the extended saddle curve allows you to lower the height adjust screw yet the extra lower threaded hole keeps the screw support strong and allows the screw to be dropped flush or below the saddle even so you don't chew up your hands.

Pricey? Not really - so what,,this should be the standard S saddle for any strat.
