How are the un-notched saddles working for you ? Since that very small, but influential, blurb from JD Simo regarding his preferring un-notched saddles, I’ve been wanting to try the un-notched life!no file
i use 400 grit emery paper or something similar and just hold the saddle between my thumb and index finger, also I'm not doing this to get more contact but to expose more string after notching if needed
what you need to see is that Wilko's pic of the two saddles is showing contact area and that you could easily back file a notch in the fatter topped saddle to have the same string contact as the thinner topped saddle, then you open up a can a worms and ponder, does a saddle with more mass sound better than a saddle with less mass
my FU made a diff. and for now I'm riding it un-notched
If it’s not sold, I’ll gladly take that off your hands. I just sent you a message a little bit ago. ThanksSo I got two, one NOS and on AGED
both bodies look the same
only diff. I see is that on the AGED the saddles seem dirty, In a good way
both sound the same, anyway, I only need one
both are un-notched
so if someone wants one , let me know which. I have NOS on now but can swap it if that’s the one
i’m in the 48 east coast
paid 400 euro each, only one is available for 428 usd

Did you notch the saddles yourself?- My Four Uncles ABR-1 is the NOS version. The saddles came unnotched, now they are, but notches are tiny !
- The strings are more balanced all the strings sound fuller . You don't get more "this" or less "that", you get more TONE period.
- Since september 2020, Gibson Custom Les Pauls come with brass thumbwheels. A must !
You can see on that pix here, that the Four Uncles ABR-1 is truly an "oeuvre d'art" (a work of art) !
