After experimenting for almost a year now, I believe I now have the best sound my L-05 can produce.  Three changes contribited to the improvement (IMO).

1. bone saddle - improved sustain, separation and clarity.
2. Tusq bridge pins in combination with
3. DR Extra Life (coated) bronze phospher strings - evened the tone across the board.

If nothing else, the bone saddle is a cheap upgrade and a noticable improvement . . .

Where did you pick-up the Bone Saddle?
Did you have to file it at all?

Roman...I agree Larrivee that I've put a bone saddle in has had the same improvement.The Tusq pins also.Maybe we all should push some buttons of the right people and then maybe they will come with bone.Did you go with a comp saddle or a strait saddle?

I was using pre-compensated saddles but for $3 for a saddle blank vs. $6 for pre-compensated (FQMS) , I've been cutting and shaping them myself.

But to answer your question, I've been compensating them.

I believe their new "Bluegrass" series are now coming with bone saddles stock.
