    I had Graphtech (piezo) saddles on a core Custom 24 that are similar to the non piezo you posted. Can't say I heard any difference in sound or tuning stability / string brakeage...
    I had done it only for the piezo.

    I had them on a 2003 CE 24 that I bought. I hated them, and couldn't get them off fast enough. Go with John Mann if you have to change them? Is something not working?

    +1 if your making a change go Mann Made, I would get the whole bridge block and all it will make the most difference

    their description is very accurate, you feel like the top end is gone, because it is. I've tried twice on two different guitars,
    and it just seems to change the tonal characteristics too much, they did sustain a little bit better on the typical Korean made guitars. but I removed them, within about two weeks. I tried to give them a chance, but they didn't make the cut.
    so I would not recommend them. but each player could decide for themselves.
