    I have a guitar with a set of Fender stamped saddles. I have found that I really don't care for them much and would like to trade them for a set of steel block saddles if anyone is interested.

    Are the height adjustment screws sticking above the top of the saddles? Is that why you hate them. I looked and I don't have any narrow block saddles, sorry.

    I will be receiving a tremolo with solid block saddles on it this week. I am 99% sure it is 2-1/16" string spacing. I would definitely be interested in trading them for your saddles.

    Part of it is the screws. I know I can get shorter screws but I also don't care for the feel of the edge of the saddle itself. It's why I changed them on my other axes. Eventually, if this guitar doesn't get a Floyd then it will get a set of these...

    ... like the rest of my guitars with a non-Floyd type bridge. Much nicer feel and better tone and sustain.

    What kind of saddles are those. Yeah, if you don't like the feel of the saddles even with proper length set screws than you souldn't waste money on them.

    They are Babicz full contact hardware saddles. The entire base of the saddle contacts the base place instead of just two tiny screws and the height adjustments are made with a cam that rolls inside the body of the saddle.
