The red aluminum Nut and Saddle Setup Gauge, SPNSG, has four troughs measuring depths of 1/32", 1/16", 3/32", and 1/8", plus the thickness of the gauge itself, 1/4", giving you a total of five different depths. MORE INFO

Bone is the material of choice these days for nuts and saddles. Its creamy smooth quality and natural denseness make it perfect both visually and mechanically. Another material now used for nuts and saddles is Corian®. Its appearance is very much like bone (a bit whiter), it expands and contracts like wood, and it has the advantage of non-porosity making it particularly useful for transducer-type pickup systems.

We offer unbleached bone for those looking for a traditional vintage look. Frank Ford tells us that the unbleached bone is slightly harder.

We have several useful sizes of bone from which to choose:

  • S0 is for the extra long slots of the old Martins™
  • S1 is medium height it 3/32" slots.
  • S2A (tall) saddles fit 3/32" slots.
  • S2 is medium height fit 1/8" slots.
  • S2B (tall) saddles fit 1/8" slots.
  • The special S3 is extra wide and tall to accommodate extra wide compensation or extra tall saddle height needs.

Our black buffalo horn nuts (NBHT) and saddles (SBHT) add a distinctive look to your instrument.
