For $5 I can't complain. These pins were too thick to use on my vintage Crown. Once they were firmly in place the bridge still had wiggle room. I'll shave a couple these to fit next the guitar.
Great idea, especially for using a vacuum clamp to install the bridge. However, as other reviewers have noted, the diameter of these pins is much too large to use them without a good deal of modification. I spent a bunch of time reducing the diameter of a couple of them them, but finally resorted to just butchering a couple of standard bridge pins for the right fit. Make them the size of regular bridge pins and you'll really have something.
This is in reference to installing a standard Martin-style bridge on a dreadnaught.
I've read the other reviews and wonder why they could not use these pins to locate their bridges. They fit the guitar I used them for. They have helped me to repair two more pulled off bridges and I had no problem. Go figure..
The diameter on these pins is way to big.
I have yet to find a bridge they will fit.
A good idea poorly executed!
I don't think I've ever seen a guitar bridge these would fit. More sizes should be available... Til then I'll lathe a few sets from hardwood and wax em. Glad I didn't spend a lot on them. That said, they're a good idea I hadn't thought of til I saw it here.
You need to inform potential buyers that this item will not work with a 3 degree pin. I was not able to use them at all on the guitars I build and repair. Please offer them in two sizes!
For the cost of these, their usefulness is great. It made repairing a bridge much easier, allowing for quick alignment over the original holes and keeping the glue from flooding in to them.
This is such as simple item but it works really well and the glue does not adhere to them. Recent guitar in for a bridge reset but the peg holes were worn to the point where the pegs were loose in the holes. Normally I would use two of the pegs to align but in this case, that was not an option. Using the locating pegs completed the job beautifully. Oh! incidentally I did tell the customer he needed remedial action on his bridge which he declined.
I am on the same vein as a previous reviewer. These work very well-however they do require a little hand work to get the right diameter to fit into peg holes correctly. After that, they work great-just used them last week.
after checking and rechecking the measurements, turns out the bridge I had to reset was in the right place....tapped the two outer pins into the bridge, clamped, dried, perfect intonataion...great idea.
