Hi, I'm Dave Dunwoodie, founder, inventor and president at Graph Tech Guitar Labs. "
Our mission statement is just five simple words "to improve your playing experience. Graph Tech's components are improving the performance of more stringed instruments than any other company in the world. In 1983, we invented the self-lubricating nut; it was the first nut produced using PTFE, and one of the industry's first black colored nuts. In 1990 we patented the only guitar saddle proven to reduce string breakage by over 90% - String Saver Saddles - and in 1992 we introduced the world to TUSQ. Man- made ivory. These nuts, saddles and bridge pins, have proven to more than double the perceived volume of harmonic richness when you play. Today we make TUSQ picks, the world's first harmonically rich pick with built-in tone and now Ratio tuned machine heads with innovative balanced gear technology that makes tuning, retuning and open tunings an easier, more intuitive experience.
Stay tuned, we've got more innovation and great products coming your way because, our mission is, to improve your playing experience. Dave Dunwoodie- Founder-Inventor & Head Honcho.
