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.

Waverly Snakewood Bridge Pins with Shell Inlay

By

Verified Buyer


The snakewood bridge pins are beautiful!!....
The finish on them is so nice you will think its fake! And can not possibly be wood, but it is indeed, the inlays of the pearl dot are perfectly centered, ans when ordered in the set of six, stewmac did a great job on supplying a nice matched grain set...none are more extreme that the others, so they give a great look and even flow look.

also i use to be a fan of the brass pins that work great also but for some guitars just give to high of a bright tone, and a not a loss, but not a gain on the bottom end, but these wood pins give let your guitar keep it sound with a extra added warmth, and even projection of highs and lows,..

I used my most recent set in a 1965 gibson b15, supporting an all mahogany body and an adjustable mahogany saddle, so between the pins, saddle, and the new bone nut also from stewmac, this old beginners model gibson sounds unbelievable, with great projection and a warmth that i thought would never be achieved by just upgrading the bridge pins and the nut..

Sounds so good that i may to take the time to do some extra work on this old guitar dubbed a student guitar and make it into a real beauty because i don't plan on selling it. The 3/4 body size, and 14th fret at the body, i plan on using my other stewmac products to install a nice wood binding. And a new tortoise blank to replace the badly faded existing one

But yes, the bridge pins are the bees knees!! Love them!!! And would recommend them to anyone who would like to put a nice visual match to their bridge and keep your guitars natural sound with that added
warmth!!!

i will add a photo of a before and after for just the bridge pins and new nut. The binding will be a whole different review.

Thanks, Mick konigus

High Quality

As expected, these pins are very high quality it fit and finish. They fit my J200 perfectly however, I did sand the ends on an angle to allow the string ball to glide up the pin easier.
The snake wood is very hard and allows for great transmission from the strings to the bridge.

All in all, a best buy at this price!

These pins look really nice on my guitar! They hold the strings in better also. That's why I got them because they are slotted . I think they sound the same as ebony.

Sound not what I expected.

These pins look very nice, but tend to strongly roll off the trebles, producing a dry, woody tone with prominent mid-range, but very little high end. I was expecting the pins to sound similar to ebony pins, but they are really quite different sounding.
