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.

Better than plastic

These pins are 10 to 1 better than plastic and sound almost as good as bone. Over plastic, they improve Tone, and Sustain, as well as uping the volume. I keep some for the customer who don't want to invest in bone but want more than plastic will produce. They also come in an oversize pin for larger bridge pin holes.

Good product!

If you are "really handy" w/ wood tools, the set of bridge pin reamers (StewMac #3227 for the 5 degree(Gibson and Gurian) and #3229 for the 5 degree (vintage style and modern Martin), should be on hand. As it turned out. I did not need to use them, but have them on hand in case I ever need them. the price is also good!!!!!

Truly excellent pins

Excellent, well made, consistent sizing. The galalith plastic is much harder and denser than other plastic pins and is well worth 3-4 extra dollars. They don't deform like the cheap plastic pins. These are the stock pins on my guitars unless a customer wants bone.

Just what the doctor ordered

Nicely made pins that have extended the life of a very worn bridge. Several pin holes had gone beyond 2A, which is about as big as "standard" pins go. It was replace the bridge or buy these pins, a nobrainer for me!

Nothing Special

Yes these work fine but they are nothing more than plastic pins with some color added. Add in the shipping cost that's almost as much as the pins and you have some pretty pricey plastic pins. Next time I will look elsewhere.

OS bridge pins

These pins worked as I hoped they would...strings don't pop out now.

Nice for what they are

If you are not going to splurge on bone, these are the best substitute. Very consistent from pin to pin.

Great look.

I have an import guitar that needed better bridge pins as what came with it were not tight. These were the perfect choice. Let alone their look of Ivory is just wonderful. The Abalone inlays were the right touch to match the rest of the guitar features.

A good set of pins

Got these because, a.)the stock pins on my J-45 were cheesy plastic, b.)Galalaith was the traditional "plastic" Gibsons came with, and c.) some contend that the pins don't matter that much when it comes to tone and I wanted to hear if that was true. Well, I normally like bone pins but these work and sound great and keep my Gibson looking like a Gibson. Easy to sand to fit (use one of those large fingernail boards). I have no regrets going with these....cheaper than bone too!
