Charvelle saddles look kinda familiar

Post by hobster on Wed May 25, 2011 6:26 pm

I was investigating a local ad for an 80's Charvel Charvette and found this. Check out the saddles on this Floyd Rose from a Charvel Charvette. Although way overpriced, they look just like the ones on my Bendmaster FT:

I know John stumbled across some of these from an 80's mij guitar at his local shop, can't recall seeing them on any Floyd. I'm pretty sure these were mij, i know my model 3 is. Forgive me if this is old news.

They look about right; just like the Hohner ones I found. All we need to do is get Damian to identify the bridge and we may have a source for saddles for the FT and the Precision bridges!!

Here's another one that will do.
See if you know what guitar it is. There's a big clue.

Marlin huh, never heard of those, i dig the inlay! Laughing Were they sold in the US? Good find, these saddles seem to be out there. There is a great local place that sells lots of beat up old guitars and amps, 90% crap but they are cheap! I got my 1970 Lyle there for $30 bucks, cleaned her up and have an incredible sounding acoustic. I've been keeping my eyes peeled cyclops for old mij guitars, hopefully i'll score some saddles and can share the wealth.
