The Thorn Brass Knuckle is a 1-pc. compensated saddle for T-style 3-saddle bridges.
Increased sustain, accurate intonation, and solid coupling between strings and bridge plate.
The advantage is all 6 of the strings' energy is transferred through just 2 points of contact between the Brass Knuckle and the bridge plate, instead of 6 found on a traditional 3-saddle arrangement.
The same reasons a traditional 1-pc. wraparound sounds so great.
Also prevents lateral saddle movement often resulting in uneven string spacing and strings hanging up on height-adjustment screws.
Works with tradition String-thru or Top-load bridges
Designed to match 9-1/2" radius fretboards, but we've determined it works beautifully on vintage 7-1/4" by having a slightly higher action on the high e-string, reducing choking-out during big bends.
Precision CNC machined from solid brass, not cast, then hand polished.
For the player that loves the sound of traditional brass saddles but is looking for accurate intonation and improved sustain and twang, the Thorn
Brass Knuckle will end your search for the ultimate tone.
