Perfect in any way possible

I bought these saddles to replace the ones in my Fender American Strat.

The issue I had is the most common one... when your guitar is very good and allows you to lower the action a lot, you get the saddle screws protruding from the saddle... which causes immediate discomfort when playing with palm mutes.

Another common issue with traditional Fender bent saddles, is that the saddles have no notch for the strings to stay exactly on the same place... after some time, you start getting overtones and strange pinging and vibration sounds on the unwound strings.

Highwood guitars bring you a lot of advantages:
- Saddles have two points where each screw passes through, meaning that the screws can be MUCH shorter than the traditional ones without risking no contact with the saddle.
- Each saddle has a notch that keeps the string in place, so no more overtones or having to lubricate the saddle point of contact
- Saddles seem to be much more sturdy, as well as the screws... this results in a much bigger and more stable contact surface between the saddles and the bridge itself (they don't move around anymore)

One of the best upgrades you can make on a Standard/Pro American Fender (as well as Mexican and even other brands. Just make sure you select the correct spacing for your guitar. (BTW, modern Fenders, both mexican and american, use the 10.50 spacing)

Excellent quality but not my cup of tea

Bought them to replace a nice Korean Strat (Samick Valley Arts) 6-screws trem block saddles. Nice design and material quality. More fundamental - less harmonics as expected. Unexpected less sustain. For some reasons I found the tone getting worse instead improving, in a way I cannot explain. As always the alchemy is the sum of the features and maybe that guitar was better sounding with cheapo materials, at least in that zinc-block trem bridge.
P.S.: Since I was considering a fixed bridge strat as the next buy I am giving a try to ABM chrome single bridges, converting the former trem-equipped Strat to hard tail style without permanent modifications filling the trem hole with a machined block. I can't wait for them to arrive!

Amazing
Daly, 24.09.2018
Installed this on my Fender stratocaster custom shop 60, Mexico made. Perfect match. Much better look than original vintage ones. Not to mention no more palm hurt.
But thats not all.
I didn't change strings at the same time because I wanted to see if there is any improvement in sound comparing to original fender ones. THERE IS a change in sound. Subtle one but to me very positive and audible. There are no more piercing high sounds as with originals. It's like there is more definition in tone, clarity. But when I used tremolo this saddles start to shine. I never ever heard sound like this on my strat when I was using tremolo. I hear all strings, every tone, so many harmonics. I was so thrilled. It's hard for me to explain the sound so I will tell you something you all can understand "I was blind now I can see". That sound. :)
If I buy more fender type guitars this saddles will instantly be installed on them.

Bought these to replace the saddles of a MIM Standard Fender Strat - perfect fit. Retained the original look (vintage styled saddles) and look of good quality.
