Waverly 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.

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.

Nice bridge pins for sane money

By

Verified Buyer


Very consistent sizing; exactly as shown on the drawing that Waverly shows on StewMac's site. I put these in a Martin, and I had to ream the pin holes slightly, which is fine. That way, I got consistent pin height across the bridge. They look nice too, but be aware that they are bright white, and that look may not appeal to you if you want a yellow-ish bone look. But, for what they cost, they are quite nice.

I have had several John Greven guitars over the years. He exclusively used these pins. Love the look, fit and finish...Very classy. Replacement for original, worn bone that chipped.

Beautiful ivoroid pins to dress up any acoustic

By

Verified Buyer


These Waverly ivoroid pins are beautifully made, and a perfect fit for 5 degree slotted bridges. I use them both on my new builds, and some restoration/repair of old guitars.

A nice trick to help them blend in with an older/vintage guitar is a quick wipe with Colortone vintage amber and tobacco brown stains diluted with alcohol. An extra wipe with tobacco brown under the crown gives it some grit and grime - a little mojo to help them blend in on a well-worn guitar.

wait....don't fill those holes.....

Sure beats the fill and drill and they improve the tone on most guitars especially with abs pins.

Nice addition for looks/ tone

By

Verified Buyer


Although these pins were a bit oversized for my Yamaha, a slight mod on the bridge and they fit perfectly. They look great - and along with a few other mods made the high-end a bit clearer.

Nice pins for Gibson AJ

By

Verified Buyer


I put these on my recent (2011?) Gibson Advanced Jumbo. The tops are a little bigger than the original plastic pins (one of which had broken). The fit is great and I like the look despite the bigger tops. I'm not sure whether they improved the tone--new strings went along with the new pins, and the guitar is a tone machine to begin with--but they sure didn't hurt it any. Service from StewMac was excellent as always.
