    Got some 1/4" crs saddles on order from CJ Tooling. I also ordered an extra brass b/e saddle. With a 9.5" radius, the smaller saddles are welcome so I can lower my action. I prefer it comfortably resting on the frets. :p

    Have a set of the larger steel saddles on an esquire. They sound great! Glad you are happy with yours.

    I don't have them yet...just interested to see how they help intonation and what they'll sound like compared to the Allparts saddles.

    What's up with the 3 strings being top loaded?

    Used their 5/16" steel on an pine Esquire with a Rumplestiltskin Black Rope - love it!

    Been thinking about mixing string through with top load. Does it make much of a difference? Different tone? Easier bends?

    Little less tension - allows me to use larger diameter plain strings for a fatter tone. Guitar plays with 'normal' feeling string tension, but using fatter strings for the top 3.

    FParadise - Yes, easier to bend, slinkier feel, etc, if you didn't change your string ga (as I mentioned that I did).
