I have a client with a 1969 J-50, and the old adjustable rosewood saddle has collapsed in the middle. He is asking about replacing it with a GraphTech unit:

https://www.amazon.com/Graphtech-Acoust ... B0043NSVDI

Normally, I shy away from GraphTech stuff, and had no idea they offered anything like this. But he asked me to check it out.

Has anyone here used or seen on these used on a Gibson J-50?

I have one on my 69 Gibson LG0 (same bridge and adj. saddle) and it is an acceptable substitute in my mind. Plays slightly brighter than the rosewood.
