    1. Worked for me, big improvement. 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Mar 30, 2017

      The strings need to make good contact with the SOS extension. That means you may have to file the string groves in the nut. You will need nuts files to do it.

      Just for the record, I'm writing this review as I'm ordering two more.

    2. Soft material kills sustain on 1st & 2nd strings 1 Star Review

      Posted by on Sep 21, 2015

      No noticeable improvement in intonation on Taylor 814ce. Material is too soft and kills sustain on 1st & 2nd strings

      The SOS will make 1st position chords sound more in tune. Some will barely notice a difference while others will hear a big improvement.

      The SOS are made of a bakelite material and that is not a soft material. It sounds like the SOS doesn't have good contact with the 1st and 2nd string if it's killing sustain. You can use the included shims or deepen the nut slot to increase the strings contact with the SOS.

    3. Improves Intonation 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 17, 2014

      Even though the saddle is adjustable, this product improves intonation by insuring that the open strings are in tune with the rest of the notes on the guitar.

      I am having a guitar custom made, and my guitar maker intones at both the bridge and nut.
