    it's quite easy these days to be impressed by "perfect" workmanship, "daring" design, pretty inlays and crazy-flamed woods. at the end of the day for me it's all about sound and playability...

    Re: Aluminum saddle on vintage Gibson ovals

    I had a Cremona brown Gibson F4 with an original aluminum saddle and it sounded fantastic... I also tried it with a vintage Gibson ebony saddle as well, but the aluminum one sounded even better.
