Very Nice

The Slotted Bone Bridge Pins fit my Martin DC-28 perfectly, a nice low cost upgrade. The plastic OE pins just didn't do it.

I installed these pins in my Collings D-2 Brazilian. It was already a wonderful instrument but there was an incredible gain over the original ebony pins. The sound is unbelievable. I wish I had done this from the moment I bought it. Thank you Stew-Mac.

Installed these slotted pins in a 1976 Martin HD-28. It had the factory PLASTIC pins. After re-stringing and tuning it was impressive the amount of sustain and brightness that was gained from such a simple upgrade. Bone is a superior material for this part of a guitar. Great product.

Very nice, very precise pins. Besides being so well made and attractive, they are less expensive than the ones offered by many others.

Very good buy.

Bone is Better...

By Robert S. from NC

I prefer bone over plastic. Personally I think they have improved the sound on both of my Martin guitars. They are also less likely to "wallow out" or become crooked. In switching to new pins, make sure they are seated into the holes properly - if you have to ream the holes don't go wild. (...just a little at a time until you get there!)


The pin shouldn't extend out of the bridge any more than necessary and all six should be the same height. If it needs modification, and you aren't comfortable doing it, seek out the help of a qualified repairman!



If you're looking to bring your guitar up to it's highest potential this is the best way to start - make it has bone pins AND a bone nut and bone saddle.

My new guitar bridge pins

Making my first 6 string I decided that I wanted the best pins available. These are excellent in appearance and fit the tapered holes perfectly. I made the right choice.

Instant Gratification 

By fever4reverb from Gainesville,Florida

If you'd like to change your tone and volume for the better, these things did just that for two of my best acoustic guitars. My old plastic bridge pins had been bent back and were, quite frankly, going soft. I had a little trouble installing the new bone pins in that they had to be shaved down (exacto knife stroking up and down around the length of the pin), with the blade scraping sideways. This alteration is only needed if the new bone pin will not seat all the way down in its hole. I also had to "curl" the ball end of the string slightly as there is no give to the bone. THIS is where the magic is! The bone absorbs absolutely no string vibration. The string vibration is therefore transferred directly to the bridge and saddle. Thus...Instant Gratification!

Perfect

An excellent product. Improved the tone on my handmade Dubowski guitar. Next will be a set for my Gibson OJ.

These are a great set on bridge pins! High quality and great looking to boot. Replaced cheapo pins on my '69 Guild F-20 and they fit wonderfully.
