    a bit wobbly

    Posted by Nick on Mar 31, 2019

    I am repairing a '62 Gibson ES330 TD. Some of the original saddles were broke so i thought I'd give these a try. They do fit but there is some teeter-tottering on the screw because they don't fit flush on the bridge. Its not much play and does't buzz or effect the playability but it is definitely there.
    I wish just a nylon blank was available so I could make my own saddles for something like like this project.
    3 stars because they work but are not precise or perfect replacements.

    Nice change

    Posted by Aaron on Sep 18, 2015

    I was surprised with the slight tone change when I installed these. My opinion is it suits a more vintage sound if that's what you're after. It's hard to describe the change but it was noticed. I really like them for that full vintage tone I was after. Just to note that these were a little harder to setup and if you're not experienced you may need a luthier to get it right for you.
