They're like this. Open circle on one end, closed circle on the other.

thanks much appreciated...

I've been face palming myself all day because I ordered some Tusq bridge saddles from here yesterday.

http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/guitar_index.htm

and I've just seen they have the springs for $5 a pair.

http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/gbridge_springs.htm

but it's $15 postage... but if I had got them with my saddles it would have been no extra.

...i'm such a twat sometimes..... Laughing

What are you waiting for, then? skype, send mail, call by phone and extend your order. Or has it already been shipped?

allparts sucks, they always send me the wrong stuff and then give me credit, and when i use the "credit" they send me more crap that i didn't order and its useless.
why do you need new springs anyway?

i think i ordered some saddles on back order from them and it took however long they said it would take to get them back in stock plus another 5 days or so. i may have sent them a bitchy email saying "where's my stuff??" and it popped through the door the next day.

Well they better not try that on me, Evil or Very Mad

The ones I have in my guitar won't stay on the posts, the posts look fine so I presumed it was the springs?
