    Default Pat Pending Peaveys

    Does anybody know if the comfy saddles came on the pat pending peaveys, or if they were standard floyd saddles? My local GC is selling what I'm guessing is a 97 black arch top - lots of cosmetic flaws, but still plays like a champ. But something about it is fishy...

    As far as I can remember, they all had the comfy saddles from day one.

    They have contoured metal one either side of the saddle mounting screw, and an oval hole for the saddle mounting screw, instead of the sharp angular cut and open end of an OFR saddle where the saddle mounting screw is.

    Or..

    Not necessarily. I have a stock 1997 black pat pend and it has the normal Floyd open end block saddles. I had no idea they were any other way until Brett posted the picture!
