Perfect

By Tony C. from Long Island NY
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, February 23, 2011


The pins that I was using were a bit loose for my preference. These fit perfectly. Nice & snug but not too tight. One thing for sure. Whenever I do a repair or mod, I always find what I need here.

We have used these bridge pens on new and on vintage instruments and have found them to be excellent.

I love the look of them and the sound of them. These are well made. I might have made them less shiny to better differentiate them from plastic, but they are very nice.

I had to buy more until I found the appropriate size for my 12 string guitar

Ebony Bridge pins, unslotted

By Terence Kennedy from Alexandria MN

I have used these pins on 30 guitars. They are great. There are minor size variations so each pin stays in the same hole after fitting. I scribe little marks on the shaft with a nut file ti ID them.

Unslotted and solid

I vastly prefer slotting the bridge rather than having slotted pins. The ball end to bridge plate contact is more secure. Great pins, great price.

Great pins for a great price.

I was a little skeptical at first regarding the notion that bridge pins make a huge difference in tone, but was pleasantly surprised when I replaced my plastic bridge pins for a set of ebony ones.

The pins are flawlessly designed and have a snug fit. They are also polished and have a satin like feel to them.

The tone of my acoustic guitar is somewhat clearer and more defined. It seems to have more volume too. These pins are a great upgrade for the money.

Perfect for old, worn bridges

Am restoring an old Columbia parlor and wanted to keep the original pyramid bridge. Checked many vendors and found these - they fit perfectly and are perfectly uniform. Great product for restoration work!

Great Value!

Bluegrass is king in Indiana and I cater to Martin owners that want the biggest, best tone possible. After installing one set of Ebony pins for an influential picker, I almost instantly had five guys in my shop that all wanted the same for their Martins.

I had never ordered small packaged parts from Stew Mac before but was already placing an order and caught these in the catalog. They are half the price (for the customer) of Ebony pins from other sources, and machined just as fine!

My customers didn't know the difference, and thought I was just giving them an extra discount!

I have since ordered several sets and will continue to do so!
