I had plastic pins on my Epiphone AJ500 Masterbuilt and tone and sustain just weren't there . I put the StuMac bone pins and an old bone bridge saddle on and now my guitar sounds GREAT ! Can't figure why Epiphone would put a bone Nut on the guitar and cheepen it with plastic . Thanks StuMac !
Made my guitar sound too tinny for my taste but gave my friends guitar much better tone over plastic. Stuck out from my Martin guitar way too far before some minor sanding to each one. And polished from end to end, these pins look like gems, although they each have an slightly different color. Sounded best with finger picking, for a more mellow tone with same great sustain as bone, try ebony.
instal on my Martin : D41 (1996)and 000 custom (2011)very good sound , the angle cone is right but , as show on Konstantin photo , Moscow , they stick out of the bridge .
Tried to install them (pins with black dot) on every guitar i have - taylors GC4 and 314 and Seagull S6 original. These pins just doesn't fit them and installed they stick out of the bridge compared to original pins. You have to modify your guitar's bridge, which is not acceptable for me. Big disappointment.
Best pins out there, they fit and are polished nicely for an upgrade in looks and sound.
Bone Bridge pins are great i put them in my cheap
plywood flat top and it make the sound so much more even you can hear it and i could see in a tuner that tunes just by sound bang for the buck if you want cheap better sound out of your guitar
Great product! Fit into my Martin D-16 with no modifications. Sound quality is first rate. Thanks Stewmac!
These bridge pins are excellent. They brighten up the tone of my HD-28 and give it more power and punch in hard driving rhythm and runs. These pins uncovered tone that had been subdued.
I've bought a good number of bridge pins over the years looking for the right ones for my guitars. The bone and Ebony pins offered by Stew Mac are BY FAR the best that I've found. The quality is as good as I could ever ask for. They are completely polished from end to end! WOW! The only complaint I have is that they're only offered in a 5 degree taper. If Stew Mac started offering them in a 3 degree taper, I'd never buy bridge pins from anywhere else again! Thanks guys!!!
The abalone bridge pins I ordered fit pretty good on my Gibson J45 but the color didn't match on them. Some were very colorful and others were white or even clear looking.
