Chopping the ends off bridge pins

If you're not careful, installing new strings can create a problem that throws you out of tune or damages your bridge pin holes. Elliot John-Conry of EJC Guitars shows us an easy fix.

A great improvement

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I put these in a 2009 custom quilted maple Gibson Hummingbird that needed some more punch when finger picking and also in a 1956 Gibson LG-3 that needed some of the openness calmed down to get more volume and clarity.

I was not expecting a major improvement but it is quite a noticeable difference from the plastic pins. More sustain with amazing new harmonic layers. More volume and clarity without any harshness or brittleness. I feel like this is how these guitars were meant to sound.

They look great as well, nice translucent depth with patterns seen within . They may not be perfectly uniform in colour across all the pins, but it is subtle and they look way better than plastic regardless of that issue.

I highly recommend these.

Colours are not even close to consistant...

I bought these together with a saddle and nut. All are completely different colours... Not impressed.

Nice upgrade

Ordered these for my '81 Guild D-40 to replace the OEM plastic pins. Perfect fit! What a difference. Excellent upgrade at a good price.
