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

Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Acoustic Guitar Saddle - Taylor Compensated 1/8":
Wasn't sure if Tusq compensated saddle for Taylor guitars with my L-09 Larrivee. With just a little bit of sanding with 400 grit sandpaper, the saddle slid right into the slot. The strings had to be installed only once because the height turned out to be just right. With a new set of strings and a new saddle, my 10 year-old Larrivee is sounding really great.
