Decent

I was a little hesitant to order these saddles because I'd read that sometimes they break during installation. Fortunately, I managed to install all six of them successfully. However, one saddle had an off-center hole and I had to file one of its sides to make it fit. I wish I shouldn't have had to do that, especially on a product that costs this much. I was a little disappointed that they aren't notched gradually. Instead, half of the saddles have wide and the other half have narrow notches. Other than that, I'm satisfied with the quality and tone of these saddles.

bad quality for this price

I installed these on my TOM bridge on my gibson les paul studio.
The material these things are made out of isn't as strong as steel. I broke one of the saddles by adjusting the saddle screw. Also, the biggest problem with these is their size. They are so wide, you can't always intonate perfectly because there is not enough room on the bridge to move the saddle.
I haven't broken a single string at the saddles though, which happened way too often before.

Perfect Fit
Flavio S., 31.05.2013
These saddles fit perfectly into a very worn 1980s Nashville bridge. Some users of these saddles have noticed a drop in high frequencies. I have not noticed this, however, I mostly play with a clean to minimally overdriven sound. The string spacing/radius was accurate for my 80's Les Paul.

If you plan to change saddles make sure to read the specs on these; this model is for pre-2000 nashville bridges. There is another model for post-2000 nashville bridges.

super mais fragiles au montage
Frederic610, 06.06.2011
J'ai achete ces pontets Graphtech pour upgrader une Les Paul Studio Gibson. Les pontets d'origine étaient déjà marques et je casse souvent des cordes. Ces pontets Graphtech sont vendus comme solution a une casse de cordes trop fréquente. Il y a deux variantes de pontets : trois pour les cordes aigues, trois autres avec un sillon un peu plus large pour les cordes graves. Ne pas inverser. J'ai fait cette erreur... Malgré une certaine expérience dans le domaine, en démontant le pontet de la visses Gibson, il s'est casse en deux au niveau du filetage. J'ai acheté un second jeu de pontets. Depuis mon son est bien plus précis et il me semble que je ne casse plus autant de cordes qu'avant. Bilan globalement positif.
Mais, contrairement aux pontets Gibson, je pense que les Graph Tech ne supportent pas bien les montage-démontage voire les réglages intempestifs. Comme on ne règle pas l'intonation et l'action de sa guitare tous les jours, ça doit tenir de nombreuses années mais ça peut faire hésiter certains.
Je trouve que Graphtech pourrait donner deux pontets de plus dans le jeu, un pour les graves et un pour les aiguës. Pour ceux qui ne veulent pas prendre de risque, mieux vaut acheter le chevalet complet chez Graphtech.
