Waverly Dark Tortoise Bridge Pins

About This Item

A remarkable simulation of natural tortoiseshell
Our specially blended dark tortoise material makes a beautiful addition to a fine guitar. Light passes through, and it looks amazingly like protected hawksbill turtle shell.

Better bridge pins: machined, never molded
Our bridge pins, end pins and strap buttons are precision-machined from Galalith, a dense and durable material used in vintage jewelry. There are none of the mold lines or distortion common to plastic parts. These pins work perfectly. They're the nicest gift you can buy your favorite guitar!

All pins have a 5-degree taper.
Slotted pins have a 0.070" (1.78mm) string slot.
Sold in packages of 6.

Great fit and finish. Like the "look"

These fit nicely in my new (to me) 00-18 custom Martin (2015). Why does Martin put bland, shiny, black plastic pins in a $2K+. guitar? At least use the Waverly Ivoroids (Galalith) w that strangely alluring pattern...Anyway... Generally would go w bone but the Tort. (plastic) looked so inviting. Nice snug fit... Wish that the dalmatian spots would show more once in the bridge.Good fit. Nice heritage (aged) color/ look. Probably get a set of bone pins and compare after a few months of play on these.

Got these for my Martin 0-21 after noticing that Collings was using similar pins on their 01 Traditional series guitars. The look much better than bone or dotted ebony (which I had also tried) on this particular instrument. Were a bit tight and needed to be sanded to sit correctly on the bridge (taped them, put them into the chuck of a drill and slowly removed material with 150 grit paper), but have worked well since then.

Quede encantado. compre los Dark Tortoise para una de mis guitarras yamaha moderna. Lamentablemente, No encajaron ya que los orificios de mi guitarra son mas estrechos.
Asi que termine utilizandolos en otra de mis yamaha Vintage de 12 cuerdas, Ahora debo comprar otro juego. U.U

Señores de Stewmc. Seria Genial que tambie trabajaran versiones mas estrechas, en especial hay muchos usuarios. Yo por ejemplo. que no me gusta modificar olgaduras en los orificios de los Bridge Pins de mis Guitarras.

Por lo demas!!! EXELENTE! GRACIAS
:D

These are an excellent addition the acoustic guitars I own. They look a lot better in brighter light but they have a nice vintage look. They look much better than the white pins that were on the one guitar and the black pins the other had it didn’t change it dramatically but as I said in sun light the really look great.

Good replacement pin

Great looking and a perfect drop-in for my Martin bridges. Have to admit I 'm a tortoise fan. The pins add a distinctive look and are hard enough to transmit vibrations well.

Would be nice if they came with a beveled tip, but that's easily fixed with a small file.
Couldn't be happier.

Nice pins.

Pity they are 5 degrees. My error. I bought a number of these but failed to notice the taper.
Do not have a reamer to suit so will need to acquire one. Really nicely made and very hard. I had already 90% reamed the holes with my 3 degree reamer before I realised my mistake. I made my bridge from lace She-Oak and they would have been perfect had I not missed the taper. Others Beware!
