If you have a guitar and $40 to spend..BUT 'EM!

Features:
Put them on my strat a while back along with a new set of strings. Its been quite a while now and my strings havent broken yet :D Besides increasing string life, the String Savers also increased my guitars sustain quite a bit..tuning has also been easier..dont have to stretch the strings after each adjustment, anymore..
Durability:
Flawless construction..

String Savers are cheap, easy to install, make a huge difference in tone, and save agressive players like me the trouble of buying new strings all the time. No player should be without these.

Features:
The first thing I noticed was that these saddles make a huge difference in terms of tone. Added to my Ibanez Stagestar through an Ibanez 225 combo, notes have a lot more definition, and my guitar sustains longer. I mainly got these because I broke strings at a rate of about one per week (especially the low A and E strings), and I've had them for three months and I have not broken a single string.
Durability:
I play really, really hard, and these things don't have a scratch on them.

This is a great product. I wish they had these for floyd rose trem saddles. They only drawback is that they are a bit hard to find. I had to mail-order.

Features:
Reduces string breakage at the bridge saddle with graphtech's special built-in lubrication.
Durability:
The hold up very well - better than steel or brass because they haven't gotten grooves worn in them.

As soon as I put them on and tuned up I could hear the difference. It was subtle but they added a slight richness to the tone taking away a little twang. They adjust better and setting the intonation was a little easier. They also have a lower profile than the stock ones which looks cooler. I don't have a problem with breaking strings but I was told that my sound would improve with these so I went for it. It did and I'm happy with them.

I put these on my MIM strat. They are the "import set" which are narrower for the vintage mexican tremelo.
Durability:
They are supposed to reduce string wear and tear. I'm not sure how long they will last.
