Looking for a Yamaha acoustic guitar saddle? Consider our bone saddle, which will fit many post-2000 Yamaha steel string acoustic guitars including models from the F, FG, FGX, FS, A, L, APX, and TransAcoustic Series. Compare to Yamaha part number WT83730E.

Additionally, we make our bridge saddle with a 3.1 mm thickness to allow you to adjust to a snug fit in your guitar’s bridge slot. However, some of our competitors make saddles to a 3.0 mm thickness, and this can result in a loose fit.

Many people prefer bone to the factory plastic saddle because of the rich, warm tone produced.

Please note that each guitar is slightly different and your new bone saddle may need adjustments to the height, length, or thickness to match your factory Yamaha acoustic guitar saddle. We include a piece of sandpaper for you to make adjustments.

Please let us know of any questions regarding fitting your saddle’s action height, intonation, or any other factor. If you are not fully satisfied, please let us know and we’ll either provide a replacement saddle or a refund.


MacNichol Guitars

MacNichol Guitars provides high quality bone saddles that last a long time and produce excellent tone. Inexpensive, low quality bone saddles are often overly porous and whitened with harsh chemicals, resulting in weak bone that does not last and produces poor tone. We help you find the right saddle – length, height, thickness, radius, and compensation – for your specific guitar. Once you receive the saddle, contact our free expert support with any questions on installation. Not entirely satisfied? We will send a free replacement or full refund.

    I purchased one of these for my Yamaha FG-730S.
    Seen this on Amazon, and when it said, “Fits most newer Yamaha Guitars”……I thought I’d give it a try.
    When I was fitting the new saddle…..I used a dial caliper and checked everything against the old one.
    The new saddle (Length) was almost perfect. The thickness was .010 thicker.
    When installing it in the Bridge Slot…It was an EXACT fit!!! The old one had side play…the new one fit perfect! No trimming for length or thickness.
    I was so impressed that all I had to do was trim the height……
    I ordered another one to keep on hand.
    Thank You so much MacNichol.

    I purchased this saddle for my Yamaha FG-830, and it made a substantial improvement compared to the urea plastic saddle installed. Better clarity and projection, as well as tonal fullness. I would highly recommend this saddle.

    Very nice bone saddle for my Yamaha. It fit the length and thickness of the bridge slot in my FS830 like a glove.
