Looking for a fully compensated unbleached bone guitar saddle? Our saddle with 16 inch radius will fit many guitars with an undersaddle pickup and 12 inch radius fretboard. The saddle height is set one mm lower than our standard Fully Compensated saddle height to account for the undersaddle pickup thickness. This reduces the amount of adjustment time required.
Please contact us with your specific guitar brand, model and year for which saddle size would work best.

Commonly referred to as ‘step compensated,’ a fully compensated guitar saddle is similar to a B compensated saddle. However, a B compensated saddle only has one compensation slot, whereas a fully compensated saddle has five string slots – one for the treble E, one for the B, one for both the G and D, one for the bass A, and one for the bass E string.
Please note that each guitar is slightly different and your fully compensated guitar saddle may need adjustments to the height, length, or thickness to match your factory saddle. We include a small piece of sandpaper that you can use for adjustments.
Please contact us with any questions about fitting your guitar saddle, 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 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.
