The Goliath size is exactly the same as Martin's Dreadnought.  I have placed my Goya M-26 back to back with my Martin D-21 and they match exactly as does a Gibson Hummingbird or Dove.

It's a yes/no sort of thing. I like the individual saddle but I have had to rebuild them with the super glue baking soda mixture. The "Goliath" size is really fun and I do love the way it sounds. The action is almost too low but the key word is almost.

Sold for $113 which is good for a project guitar. I like the individual bridge saddles, provided you keep the top profiled to the correct shape they work very well. The ridge on the top that the string sits on does wear eventually. Gradually lowering them will help to keep the action low as the guitar inevitably folds up, so you get a few more years out of it before you need the neck reset. Of course lowering the bridge reduces the volume of sound produced, but it's a handy thing to be able to do.
