Graph Tech PG-8000-OC Stringsaver?

I bought the original, all black, graphtec saddles some years ago and didn't get on with them at all. To me, they sapped a lot of tone and although they didn't break strings the detriment in sound was enough for me to never use them again. However, despite this I thought I'd give the classic metal ones a go and put them on a Blade Super Vee. What an improvement! Somehow even though they still have the strings resting on teflon ?/? they actually sound even better than pure steel saddles. Loads of bite depth and harmonics. Thank you Graphtec. A great product. Oh yes and the strings don't break either even with dive bombs and pull backs :-)

Excellent quality, but it darkens the sound

I installed these saddles on an LTD GL-256 super strat with vintage tremolo.

The build quality is excellent, and they avoid string breakage indeed.
The overall sustain of the instrument increased also sensibly, and the tuning stability improved noticeably.

However, even though they added plenty of lower harmonics, after the installation the guitar sounded way darker. Not muddier, but the lower harmonics became too dominant.
Therefore I would definitely recommend this product if you have a too bright, thin or even piercing sounding guitar. It will definitely make the sound fatter and richer.

Astronomically better than the stock saddles.

Those horrible stock strat vintage saddles the strings eat into and they can't keep the intonation or action stable. Occasionally you scratch yourself on the screwheads etc etc.....

These look and feel better. Super easy to install, just takes a bit of time to setup your guitar afterwards.

BETTER IF NOT GREAT

First time I mounted these saddles on my strat and my conclusion is - besides saving strings - the acoustic zingg improved substantially, and in consequence the overall amplified sound too. I recommend to put also the Tusq nut since the two together make a complete tandem. What you also experience is a major improve on bending your strings since both saddles and nut are lubricated for life. Smooth bending with less effort. I will change all my guitars (Teles, Les Pauls) to this system little by little. Really a no brainer!

My next wish are the Ratio tuners from these guys; a major improve too!! These canadians deliver good stuff.
