Highwood Announces Contoured Vintage Saddles

The saddles come in three different sizes and two finishes.

Warmenhuizen, The Netherlands (August 16, 2017) -- Highwood Guitar Parts have released their new innovative stamped S-type Saddles. Highwood Contoured Vintage Saddles are bent backwards at the position of the saddle height screws, providing an extra threaded hole for these screws to go through.

HG Contoured Vintage Saddles have more mass giving longer sustain, clearer note separation and definition, improved harmonic response and touch sensitivity. The saddles are made from exceptional quality original steel and are Nickel Coated direct onto the steel body, providing pure vintage tone. These smooth feeling saddles still retain a lovely vintage look.

Available in widths 0.441”, 0.425” and 0.413” these saddles come in gloss or reliced finishes. All saddles are made with center-positioned stainless steel inch intonation screws, stainless saddle height adjustment screws and stainless steel springs.

Highwood Contoured Vintage Saddles are $57 for a gloss set and $65 for a reliced set.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
