    They are saddles . Blobs indeed . ;)
    Please note the type of tuning machines used and the lack of a slotted headstock .

    Nice guitar!

    I like the blobs. they prevent the strings cut into the headstock as well. Well thought.

    Standard Martin or Gibson saddle material depending on whether cut 3/32" or 1/8" . Very available materials (bone) that even an Afghani goat herder could work with . I love simple . Headstock shapes that are totally impossible with this style tuning machine are also possible . You could even do a Gumby Gibson Moderne headstock shape with this setup . A radius must be shaped into the saddles on the side where the strings break over them or the strings will work harden and break . The radius cures this .

    Only the top has a burst . Satin Nitro that was dulled , so it could be buffed to a gloss if desired , but I like the satin . Old school look .
