For Sale:
1 X GRAPHTECH 9161-CC Martin style acoustic saddle

Quoted as being suitable for a Martin style acoutic guitar however this may fit a variety of guitars including some other branded acoustic guitars. Check the dimensions first.
Length – 73.8mm / 2.905″
Width – 2.60mm / 0.102″
Height – 8.50mm / 0.334″

What we have here is…

A genuine Graphtech Tusq acoustic guitar saddle. I buy them in Bulk so they are NOT in a retail blister pack.
We use these in our workshop but get asked for them all the time so thought I would sell them!

This is the type of Saddle that Martin use on many of their guitars however it is pre-lowered to give your guitar a much LOWER string height (action). The standard saddle that yu get with many Martin guitars is around 10.5 to 12mm high.
The standard replacement Martin saddles are either ‘High compensated’ at 7/16in high (11.2mm approx) or ‘Medium’ at 3/8in high (approx 9.5mm).
These saddles are the same length 2.9in (approx 73.8mm long) but lower at just 8.5mm tall

NOTE – can be quite easy to fit, you may need to still file the bottom edge down to get the string height you want so that will take a bit of care but otherwise it’s pretty straight forward.
Make a note of the measurements, other saddles are available

More info:
TUSQ delivers the optimum frequencies from the strings to the guitar top, producing richer and fuller tone.
Guitar makers and players agree…acoustic guitars come alive with TUSQ man-made ivory. TUSQ is simply more efficient at transferring vibrations to your guitar top, resulting in big open lows and clear bell like highs.??

Bone and Ivory Nut and saddles have one inherent problem – they’re made from organic materials, and therefore have inconsistent soft or dead spots because of their natural grain. TUSQ Nut, saddles and bridge pins are precision engineered under high pressure and heat, specifically to govern which frequencies are transferred to your guitar top (tone), and which frequencies remain in the strings (sustain).??

TUSQ is consistent from piece to piece, and within each piece, to offer you harmonically rich tones without the problems associated with natural materials.

Length – 73.8mm / 2.905″
Width – 2.60mm / 0.102″
Height – 8.50mm / 0.334″
Note: All Graph Tech Nut and saddles are slightly long and wide to ensure extra room to achieve a perfect fit for your guitar. This extra material can easily be removed with fine grit sandpaper.

NOTE: Possible expert fitting recommended.
