Need a Yamaha guitar bridge saddle? Consider our bone saddle, which will fit many post-2000 Yamaha guitars with undersaddle pickups 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. Height is set at one mm lower than our standard Yamaha-style saddle height to account for the undersaddle pickup thickness. This will reduce the amount of time required for sanding.

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

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

Please let us know of any questions regarding fitting your action height, intonation, or any other factor. If you are not entirely 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.

  1. Enrique Robledo

    Bone unbleached saddle replacement for my Yamaha LL16 (2016 model). Compensated B, 9mm for use with pickup. Fit like a dream. Restored my tone back to its former glory. Excellent product. No need for adjustment/sanding. Spot on!

  2. Tim Von Schaaf (verified owner)

    Replacement for plastic saddle for a Yamaha FGX3. Fits with very little sanding to the length. Frequencies are balanced. Tone is great. Increase in volume. Excellent! Buy it! Support @ Macnichol is superb. Helped me get this troublesome model guitar right. Thanks!
