I put this guitar together a few years back with Rutter’s brass compensated saddles. I liked them, but brass is a little soft, and I’m picky about my more clarity. I had re-filed the grooves a couple times, but had long been curious if I would like steel better. I started guitar life as a Strat man. I was worried about the steel imparting a brittle tone. My high e was already edgy. I actually found that, not only did my low strings come alive, the plain strings seem to be better balanced and sound more “supported”. It seems much more evened out, open, and clear. The angle of the saddle height screws was different. Threw me for a loop for a second. Just fyi.
