    What's better for sound in string saddles?

    Zinc
    Steel?
    Brass?

    or that stuff that Gotoh uses called Restolite (or something like that).....made of aluminum?

    I don't think they change tone in any way, unless they're made of cotton.
    Tusq and graphite are good because self lubricated. Metal is metal as far as I'm concerned, I make the choice based on looks.

    Jazz Ad is right. But even if there was a difference, there would be no better or worse.
