Added warmer tone and a touch of class...

...to my 2010 Martin D-18V. The pins do seem to add a bit of warmth compared to the stock plastic pins, but this might be my imagination. In any case, these well made pins add a touch of class and elegance to this fine guitar. The abalone dots match the fingerboard dots and so they look like they belong there. By the way, I slotted my bridge with Stew-Mac's slotting saws and converted to unslotted pins, a step I recommend.

The only complaint I have with these pins is that they're only available in size 2A. I have several guitars I'd love to use these pins on, but they won't fit. Come on, Stewart MacDonald, there are plenty of fine guitars out there besides recent Martins, you know.

original pins for my Taylor 810, original series

Ebony is certainly a step up from ivoroid, but a little harder to file down an angle at the tip to guide the string ball-end properly. That keeps bridge damage from occurring from ends not fitting properly and strings from suddenly making that "popping" sound when it slips to a tighter section in the pin hole.

Little pieces can make a big difference

Very elegant addition to my project guitar. How your strings connect to the guitar body is as important to me as how the body is constructed. You can't really change the build of the body, but using quality bridge pins, saddle, nut, and tuners can bring out more than you would expect from your instrument.
