IMHO, bone is a big improvement over tusq. Better sustain and clarity.
I've purchased in the past from Bob Colosi and he's an honest guy with quality products. Not sure if he has bone saddles made up for Samicks but it should be pretty easy for him to manufacture one for you. He ships by US post so there won't be a huge hit when it crosses the border.

Another Bob Colosi vote if your prepared to do the final fitting youself. I've seen enought people without the proper knowledge buy his saddle and improperly fit it thereby wasting therer time and money. So unless you going to invest the time to learn whats right, just pay a luthier to do the job for ya.
