    I got a new set of Glendale tele compensated saddles. I put them on Ol' Rusty, my '63
    The new ones are longer like the Kholer's that are no longer made.
    Usual impeccable quality and craftsmanship, and sound as good as my original sets
    Plus my strings don't ride one screws anymore!!

    I've heard good things about these. Expensive? Best place to source them?

    In the grand scheme of things it's not too expensive. I spent $120 a week on cigarettes. Thats a couple sets of Glendale saddles a week. Thats why I quit smoking.

    Nice! I like the compensated saddles Rutters makes as well. All very good replacements.

    I went the straighter Callaham/Wilkinson style for my aluminum/brass/brass compensated saddle combo because they were more within my budget and I prefer the straighter saddles aesthetically over the zig-zag. However I've heard great things about that Glendale "Twang" set. Which is why I just had to put together a poor man's version of it. =)
