Anyone changed the tusq saddle for bone?  Does it make much of a difference?  Any recommendations for the saddle?  Thanks.

Yes and no. Tusq is a good material. Some people swear by the improvement from bone. Some don't hear much difference. Occasionally some one reports that they like Tusq better. I don't think it is realistic to expect a bone saddle to transform an instruments voice. It is a fairly cheap and reversible project.  Bob Colosi at guitarsaddles.com is highly regarded for his aftermarket products. Or you can buy one from a Larrivee dealer.

Bone is better.... .... at leas to me.  I think bone really adds to tone definition.  If you are bit strummer, maybe stick with tusq.

Get a bone blank from stewmac.  get out a saw and some fine sandpaper and make a copy of your tusq saddle.  Put it in, if you like the sound better leave it.  I am no expert and I've made several bone saddles, pretty easy.
