  • where to find saddle for Ovation

    I have a Tangent 257, an all-black model. Saddle is broken. But it's a thin saddle and has those little 'feet' on the underside. Can't order one directly from Ovation, and the local dealer they pointed me to coudn't even find the website that I found that pointed me to them!!!



    Any ideas where I might find one? or do I just have to go with a generic bone-like saddle?
    Les Paul's & Strats, Fender Super & Blues Junior, Fulltone pedals & a whole lot of stuff that I don't use and can't seem to let go....

        The little "feet" are designed to work with the piezzo pickup. If you can't find one from Ovation it would be possible to duplicate it but it would be a lot of work. Most guitars with USTs just use flat bottom saddles, I would be tempted to try one and see how it works.
