Mustang style and with height adjustment screws. I might be tempted, any tried? Thomann are selling and seem quite reasonable.

More info - http://www.graphtech.com/product-173-2/

Pic wouldn't work so I removed. Nice pics on the Graphtech and Thomann sites though.

Haha I waited a good 20 seconds thinking the picture was loading.

Looks an interesting idea and would look dead quirky but I imagine it'd take a lot of the twang away wouldn't it?

Isn't it a cheap way of getting intonatable, height adjustable saddles that fit Mustang/Jaguar bridges for cheap, though? Paint them silver!

I think Grpahtec have all kinds of science and graphs showing their products increase sustain twang clarity mojo stuffs. No idea if it's true however!

That was my idea, not the painting part though.

I have them on my Telecaster and I've noticed no appreciable difference.

The only thing to consider with Graph Tech saddles is that some of them are not electrically conductive. I noticed when rewiring my CP Jazzmaster that the bridge is where the string ground is picked up; if your Jazzmaster is wired the same and these saddles aren't conductive they would isolate the strings. To remedy this problem you'd either need to ground the tremolo plate by making an almost-impossible hole to run a wire into the trem cavity.

If you can find a place with a nice return policy, you could order them and test them yourself with a multi-meter before installation.

If they have a graph then it must be good!

I'm pretty sure my Sunburst Japanese JM has wire that goes through from the cavity where the electronics are through the body into the tremolo cavity, I assume this is the grounding to which you are referring.

Rad, you're all set then. Time for some rubber saddles!
