About Pure Steel Saddles
Roy Bowen / RS Guitarworks
I received your saddles and springs yesterday and tried them right away. My first thought was they looked very nice, but I was shocked to find that the saddles were almost twice as heavy as the Gotoh vintage saddles and when put on the guitar they made the bass sound more solid. The Gotoh just sounded fizzy next to them. I really did not expect to hear such a difference and at first I thought it was just me, but two other guys in the room came over and asked what I had changed of the guitar because it sounded louder and fuller. I'm sold, so please send me the current price list for the saddles and the springs. As of the next run we will be using them as standard equipment on all our Old Friend Contour series guitars.

I recorded the my normal springs in my Xotic guitar, then "raw vintage" springs and there is a difference..I think the 'raw vintage" give the guitar more fat, bottom end. And more sustain....everywhere. Cool.

I really dig The Raw Vintage Saddles. You have nailed it! I put them on my vintage 1962 Stratocaster several months ago (in order to save the originals while out on the road). The Raw Vintage Saddles have every bit of the vintage warmth, depth, sustain, clarity and vibe as the originals. Congratulations & thank-you...I'm going to be putting these on all my Stratocasters.

We could not believe what a difference these saddles made. It sounded like we changed the pickups! The tone was richer, and the top end was clear as a bell.

I really wanted high quality vintage saddles, which do not change my guitar tone. This is it. I put these saddles (RVS-108) on my Signature Guitars.

I had those springs put on my guitar and I have to say, to my surpruse "It really makes a difference!!!"
There is a new kind of "resonance" in my guitar!! It almost feels like there is some sort of inner reverb!!??
Very nice, very fresh, makes my guitar and my sound "sing" a bit more!!!!!!! Thank you very much!!

My SRV Stratocaster originally had stock springs and saddles. When I was introduced to Raw Vintage, I was a little skeptical because the instructions said to use 5 springs. However, now that I've installed the saddles and springs without even plugging into an amp, the guitar is fatter and louder! I have amazing tone now thanks to Raw Vintage saddles & springs!

Raw Vintage has a new product "Tremolo Springs". I changed my springs as soon as I heard how it would better the tone. Once I had 5 springs attached, the whole body started resonating differently.
And connected to the amp, the sound was fatter, transforming dry sound into greasy tone, and more volume as well! I was truly amazed what a difference these springs can make.
Springs were put into my Xotic's custom made Stratocaster. My students at GIT (Musician's Institute) noticed the difference after hearing my guitar in class. They were surprised how fat my sound was and asked me, "Your guitar has a different tone today. Did you change the pickups?"
If you use a Stratocaster-type guitar, I would recommend trying this Raw Vintage Tremolo Springs first if you are considering changing your pickups. With these springs, you will be able to change your sound at low cost.

A couple years ago in LA studio session I saw guitar player had a Strat with 5 springs and he told me it can makes the better resonance and sustain, later I came back to Taiwan I tried his way but the difference wasn't that clear, till' to I got the Raw Vintage on my custom shop strat last month and I found there is a difference, it's fatter and more sustain, it's amazing! Now I can't wait to switch all my old strat 3 springs to Raw vintage 5 springs!
