I just acquired these 3 beauties yesterday and I am looking for some saddles for 2 of the guitars. For the Red '77? MPC X-320, I need a high E string saddle. For my Middle '72 Black 2244 Super Rock, I need the D string saddle. I don't know if saddles from different models will work and if the have to be the exact saddle replacement for the one that's being changed out. Hopefully the experts can guide me through this. Let me know what you guys have and how much shipped to zip 78413. Thanks in advance.

I think a standard Gotoh saddle should work. If not, measure them and take a look at Graphtech. They have a large assortment of saddles.
