The highest quality bridge pins I've ever found!

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.

We'll have our technicians special pick the set, to make certain this won't happen again. We appreciate you speaking up about this problem.

Very Nice

One of the easiest ways to improve the response and volume of your guitar is to have hard pins that fit well. These certainly do the trick.

Replaced stock plastic pins on my Blueridge BR-160 with these.. The sound difference is just amazing! I could tell right away. I did have to do some work to get them to fit. They are well worth the price. Plus they are just beautiful. Great upgrade! Im very happy,, Thank you Stew Mac!

Very Nice

The Slotted Bone Bridge Pins fit my Martin DC-28 perfectly, a nice low cost upgrade. The plastic OE pins just didn't do it.

Beautiful Abalone Dot Bone Bridge Pins

I bought these bridge pins after I had been looking around the internet considering making several small modifications to my guitar. I settled on these pins because I wanted some other items from this website. The price was very competitive, the pictures looked very nice, and StewMac seemed to have very good customer support.

I ordered these back about the beginning of January and finally installed them the end of January. Upon receiving the pins I was very impressed with their appearance (I had specifically requested that the abalone be vibrant and they seem to have complied). They were very well polished and looked identical in terms of size and shape. (I have one small complaint here though, one of the pins the I received was chipped at the bottom and another had a strange "bend" at the bottom. Neither of these imperfections affect the pins performance, but I was not completely impressed with that.)

Having installed the pins they look very good on the guitar, although the bone looks strange next to the cheap plastic saddle that the guitar came with. Either way they also seem to have made the guitar sound a little brighter and the guitar seems to be projecting slightly better now.

I will certainly recommend these pins. They have all that I have been looking for and StewMac was very good in providing me the product quickly and as requested.

Nicely made pins

Excellent finish, taper. Not quite 'vintage' in ball shape, but lovely none-the-less

Bone Pins

I installed these pins in my Collings D-2 Brazilian. It was already a wonderful instrument but there was an incredible gain over the original ebony pins. The sound is unbelievable. I wish I had done this from the moment I bought it. Thank you Stew-Mac.

Bridge Pins

Installed these slotted pins in a 1976 Martin HD-28. It had the factory PLASTIC pins. After re-stringing and tuning it was impressive the amount of sustain and brightness that was gained from such a simple upgrade. Bone is a superior material for this part of a guitar. Great product.
