Chopping the ends off bridge pins

If you're not careful, installing new strings can create a problem that throws you out of tune or damages your bridge pin holes. Elliot John-Conry of EJC Guitars shows us an easy fix.

Bone bridgepins

By

Verified Buyer


They have made a great difference in the tone, and sustain on my guitar I like that they do not match in color, they look like the real deal, instead of some man made produce.

Delivery time was unexpectedly fast. I am a happy camper. Jack

Looks Great and Fit Martin Perfectly

By

Verified Buyer


I am guessing these are size 1.3 rather than 2A. They fit my current Martins perfectly and look nicer than the plastic pins that come from Martin. I can't say whether they impact the sound, but I am about to order 2 more sets for my other Martins. I am guessing these will fit well in a Alvarez Yari, Blueridge, Gibsons (1995-2009 only), Huss and Dalton, Martins after 1994, McPherson and Takamine pro series only since they all use size 1.3 pins.

Good quality pins

By

These are good quality bone pins. Unfortunately, the holes in my bridge don't have quite as sharp of an angle as these do, so I can't use them.

J160e upgrade

By

Verified Buyer


I got these pins because the tone of my J160 e was a little brittle. I tried ebony pins but they didn't look right and they didn't sound the way I wanted that guitar to sound.

The bone pins are perfect, the full bright smooth tone I wanted with the same look I was after. Perfect!

Great Fit

By

Verified Buyer


These over-sized bone bridge pins went into my 1971 Martin 000-18. Over the years, the bridge pin holes became larger with wear. They fit nice and tight after a slight adjustment. Not only did they improve the already great sound of this vintage guitar, they look great (much better than the picture in the catalog.)

Kinda let down.

By

Verified Buyer


Honestly I was disappointed that they don't really look like what's in the picture. I needed them so I didn't return them and go through the hassle, wasted money and time to ship them back. They'll probably eventually end up on one of my cheaper guitars. The ones in the picture are just white while what I ended up with looks like it's got splotches of chocolate milk on them. Every single one looks that way. Hard to describe really. They don't match the picture.

Excellent Quality & Value

Verified Buyer


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

Perfect Pins!

By

Verified Buyer


Before I bought these pins for my '65 Gibson J 45, I contacted customer service for advice.
They suggested these and they were right on the money. These pins fit well, look good and most of all improve the clarity of the guitar.

Pins Keep Getting Better

By

Verified Buyer


I asked for a set of pins for my Gibson AJ that closely matched the factory plastic ones in aesthetics. These were spot on in color and much better looking. A tonal improvement as well. Great pins with a nice polish. For those of you using slotted bone pins, be sure to follow the instructions in the video below by Elliot John-Conry. This will make proper installation much easier. Maybe StewMac will bevel the ends one of these days...
