Where to buy saddles online

Post by cn90 » Thu Jun 21, 2007 7:10 pm

I live in a place with no decent CG luthier.

I need a new saddle, where can I buy a whole bunch (like 10 or so) and play with it at home?

Thanks.

Will check it out.

This is an "innocent" question but how do you cut a bone saddle? Table saw?

You really need a saw with fine teeth. I use a hand fret saw or Jewellers type saw. A small hacksaw will also cut bone/plastic.

Just so you know and don't think some has caught fire... cutting/sanding bone smells really nasty :roll: like burning hair...
