Jewelry for your guitarA vintage material is reborn
Our ivoroid bridge pins, endpins and strap buttons are made of Galalith, a dense and durable casein-based material that polishes beautifully. Popular in the early 20th century, Galalith is found today in collectible vintage jewelry. It cannot be molded; each pin is precisely machined and has none of the unsightly mold lines common to plastic pins.

Our ivoroid pins match our endpins and the knobs on Waverly guitar tuning machines.

Looks better than original

Good quality, looks good not expensive for low end instruments... or if you don't mind going cheap on your 5k instrument..

Beautiful pins!

Great high quality pins, made in Japan according to the packaging.

Unfortunately they did not fit my made in Japan Takamine guitar, but that's my fault for not checking first. These pins have a 5-degree taper, Takamine pros need pins with a 3-degree taper. Hopefully StewMac will soon offer them in that size too!

Perfect for the job

I bought these for a 1966 LG0.. These make any Gibson sound better becasue Gibson always starts with crummy plastic pins -even on the high end models...what can you say, its just Gibson....these look even better than real ivory too.. real Ivory has a kind of dull yellow patina.

4967-S - Inconsistent Abalone, May require fitting

I purchased 2 sets, but because of inconsistent quality of the Abalone dots, I was only able to get 6 decent looking pins out of 12. These pins have a very steep graduation. While this might work well out of the box for some older vintage model guitars, some of the newer ones will have less graduation in the pin holes, and would require either heavy reaming all of the holes, or shaving of all of the pins. So in my case, out of the box, these were not usable on the the quitar for which they were originally intended.

Really dress up your guitar and add a little more tone.

The best I've seen

I am restoring several old acoustic guitars and these are just absolutely beautiful. I also bought the bridgepin reamer because bridge pin sizes vary. I ended up with a great fit too.

I have a Guild OO that lives in a somewhat damp environment so Galalith was my choice over wood or bone.

My feeling is that this material will be more stable over the long run, saving me from jammed or loose pins.

The comments I see about pins not fitting properly?

Not every guitar is identical thank goodness, so the pins a made a touch oversize so the bridge can be reamed to a perfect fit.

Imagine how we would feel if these fit loosely?

The missing star is for a not so great match on the abalone.

I put the darkest ones on the 1st and 6th string and tried to fade the lighter ones over the center...

I'm weird that way, lol!

To match abalone for superb quality, there are a load of cast-offs in a batch of dots, but I would pay a couple of dollars more for perfection.

Still, great product and very well machined!

While these are plastic, they seem much more rigid than the plastic pins that came on my guitar, and they do seem to provide better volume. Balance seems the same as with the old plastic slotted pins, but sound is louder and it is perhaps a touch more complex. Notes seem cleaner after the slotted bridge/solid pin setup (except on one of my strings, which needs repair to the bridge plate.

In comparison with the ebony pins, I would say these have a bit more volume and sound less complex (lots of fundamental, though I can't compare to bone right now).

Good Product, would buy again (depending on the guitar i'm working on), and good service from stewmac.

Great bridge pins, get the reamer

These ivroid bridge pins add a nice touch to my epi Masterbilt dread. They look rich and might even be adding to the sound. I didn't need the reamer for these but I could have used it for the ebony pins I put in an older Takamine.
