Fossil Walrus Ivory Saddle Blanks
Fossil Walrus ivory for guitar saddles.
Fossil Walrus Ivory Guitar nuts and saddles render a high quality bright tone to instruments. The material is sourced from native digs on St. Lawrence Island, Alaska and is legally available to US buyers. We can only ship within the US but this material cannot sell/ship to the states of NY, NJ, or CA.
FWI can range in color from white to dark chocolate brown but the vast majority of it is a light almond color. FWI saddles can be slightly warped but are shaped and fitted easily as they will flex straight with finger tension while working and the material flex will then keep the saddle snug in the bridge slot without glue. While you can request a color preference when you order we cannot guarantee that we will have the color you want so please understand. We place a preference on cutting the densest FWI for your guitar parts because we know the acoustic properties are more important to you than the color.
Let's keep this real simple. There are 2 sizes of guitar saddles:
1) A thin saddle at 3/32" thickness. These are for Martin guitars.
2) A 1/8" thick saddle blank for almost all other brands.
On our main page you will also see categories showing drop in saddles as well as of oversize blanks.
