Ivoroid Bridge Pins

About This Item

Hand-turned, vintage style.
High quality, precisely machined with no mold lines.

All pins have a 5-degree taper. Slotted pins have a 0.070" (1.78mm) string slot. Oversized pins are thicker for worn bridge pin holes. Sold in packages of 6.

Jewelry for your guitarA vintage material is reborn
Our ivoroid bridge pins, endpins and strap buttons are made of Galalith, a dense and durable casein-based material that polishes beautifully. Popular in the early 20th century, Galalith is found today in collectible vintage jewelry. It cannot be molded; each pin is precisely machined and has none of the unsightly mold lines common to plastic pins.

Our ivoroid pins match our endpins and the knobs on Waverly guitar tuning machines.

Beware of sizing

(Customer's Reviews)


I bought two sets, one for my Gibson and one for my Martin. They are too fat. They don't fit either guitar. Will be returning them. Beautiful material and finish though.

An easy fix for a tough problem

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I own an old Epiphone acoustic, great playing and great sounding guitar. Its one problem has been that the bridge pin holes were reamed out a little too wide. the last few string changes it has been very hard to keep the pins in as the normal diameter pins were bottoming out. Voila, $10 for extra wide bridge pins solves the problem with no pain.
An excellent trick to have in your book, a set of oversized bridge pins.

Better than plastic

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These pins are 10 to 1 better than plastic and sound almost as good as bone. Over plastic, they improve Tone, and Sustain, as well as uping the volume. I keep some for the customer who don't want to invest in bone but want more than plastic will produce. They also come in an oversize pin for larger bridge pin holes.
