Classic

The bone pins with abalone dots are of course much denser than plastic, and have an off-white "aged" look. Only problem I had was the slots caught and pinched a 56-gauge low E string. If you play mediums, you will need to file or scrape out the slot of at least one pin to fit.

One size fits all?

I ordered bridge pins for my '91 D-45. They arrived quickly and looked good, but they seemed small for the holes. I assumed they were "one size fits all", but another supplier offers several different sizes.

I love these bridge pins due to the consistency of dimensions and the hard, vintage figured bone.

Great pins, great service

My pins came with two being a lot darker than the other 4. Overall they look great, but I'm a bit picky with details like this. I emailed support and they had sent two replacements immediately. Stew Mac has great products and great service.

Nicely finished

These were just slightly oversized so they do stand a little tall. Not bad so I'll let my bridge wear in over the years.
