Bone Nut & Saddle
« on: March 22, 2006, 09:23:08 AM »
Well I bit the bullet and finally took my guitar D42S into my lutheir for a bone nut and saddle and of course some new strings....

Not bad all for under $100 bucks...

Can hardly wait to get her back...

Rock on.....[8D]

Just got my baby back...

WOW the bone looks a lot better and sounds just as good.

I think well worth the minor investment..

I got it from my local luthier.... Its more reasonable than you think...

Definately worth the money.... Makes the guitar sound like 3 to 4 model better...

There is a guy on the web Bob Colosi who has factory bone replacements for washburn... I got one of him for my cousin and am happy with that ine too...

Rock on.........[8D]

I'm in Phoenix AZ.... Not sure where DFW area is....

Bob Colosi is in Georgia area.. You can install his saddles yourself.

It's the nut that needs to be professionally installed.
