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.

Like guitar jewelry!

I love these pins, the materials and workmanship are first rate.

My only complaint is that they are only available in size 2A. There are lots of good guitars besides late model Martins, you know.

I used these on a vintage MIJ D18 copy and they fit perfectly! When I got the guitar, it had smaller, newer bridge pins that were too small. I thought about ordering the oversize pins, but because these are vintage spec, they're already the right size. I didn't even catch it, but StewMac actually sent me white ones, caught their own error and sent me the ivoroid ones for free! Perfect fit, finish, feel and color. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Great Addition

I recently purchased a Gibson L-1 Robert Johnson guitar. It's a wonderful instrument, except for the cheap looking (injection mold seam lines) bridge pins. I gave these a whirl, and they look great. Why Gibson can't start off with decent bridge pins in addition to the bone nut and bridge is beyond me. These are great!

Just the thing for an old guitar

Solved the loose fit of my old pins -- good idea to offer these oversize pins.

Sounding Great

I recently purchased Slotted Ivoroid bridge pins for a vintage Yairi acoustic. This addition added a little clarity and sustain to an already very tone balanced and beautiful sounding old spruce top. These pins are very well made and I highly recommend them. Thanks Stew-Mac for another top notch product!

These pins are the real deal. The epitome of Bridge Pindom. Do away with those nasty plastic pins and put the best possible pins on your or your customers' guitar. They are well made and bring out the crystal clear tones and look great.

The best Bridge Pins

These bridge pins are the best I have ever encountered. Hard and durable, beautifully made and nice ivoroid look. I prefer the unadorned and unslotted for even greater durability from string wear. I prefer to add my own dots to match the particular guitar. Great Job Stew Mac.

Nicely made, very close to spec.

The style is a composite of different vintages of Martin pins. But, most critically, the taper and the diameter of the shank below the ring match postwar Martin pins.

If you have reamed the bridge on your HD-28VS to properly seat its original pins, and then switch to these because you have also slotted it, the Stew Mac pins will sit higher. But if you check with a caliper and a magnifier, you will see that that is because of the malleability of the plastic Martin pins, not because the original dimensions of the Martin pins don't match. Go ahead and ream the bridge a little more and seat these pins; they're much better quality.
