My saddle is not listed!   What do I do?

There are millions of guitars and nearly as many saddle configurations.  If you do not see your instrument listed above, I will likely need to:

1 -  have your saddle sent in to be copied   I receive many send-ins every day, and this is the best way to ensure your replacement saddle is correct!  MOST saddles are quite easy for me to reproduce, but please contact me prior to sending anything!   I'll  need to know which make/model guitar it is going in,  basic sizing info, or even photographs of the saddle in question.   This will allow me to make sure it is one I can recreate.  I'd prefer initial requests for copies be done via Email, as that will allow me to do some quick research, followed by shipping instructions, payment, etc.  

One other important note:  It is very helpful for me to know how the original saddle you'll be sending fits.  If your original fits perfect, this will simply allow me to get your copy much closer, minimizing the work you must do to install it.  If it does not fit well, or is broken in 3 pieces... no worries... just let me know and we'll take care of these on a case-by-case basis.

2 - obtain a full set of dimensions from your existing saddle  ...including H x W x L, radius and compensation (if any), and these measurements will need to be taken with a dial caliper.  We must have this degree of accuracy because "close enough" simply does not cut it where saddle fitting is concerned.  My goal is to make something that will be accurate, correctly configured for your guitar, and allow you to fit it to your instrument with relative ease.  Again, contact me with any questions and we'll see what we can do!75
