“You guys are the best. I just received my order and literally every time i describe my specifications on how the fretboards should look you guys deliver 10/10. the two long scale indian rosewood fingerboards looks simply spectacular and the ziricote is glorious. I usually dont take the time to write these but this time I had to. Thanks for years of wonderful service guys. And if you can find the guys who helped pick my recent boards, make sure to personally tell them how happy I am."
WOOD BRIDGE PINS Our beautiful wood bridge pins are available in Bloodwood, Boxwood, Cocobolo, Ebony, Indian Rosewood and Tintul/Tamarind (a hardwood found in India that is almost indistinguishable from Indian Rosewood in a bridge pin). Many of the pins have abalone, MOP, parisian eye, Boxwood or Ebony dot accents.
3 DEGREE PINS: 3 degree bridge pins are used as replacements on most production guitars (Taylor and overseas made instruments, for example) and on pre-1994 Martins and pre-2002 Collings guitars. 3 degree has been a popular choice with many of the high-end custom luthiers as it has been commented that it is easier to provide a good fith with a wider variety of strings with this taper
5 DEGREE PINS: 5 degree pins are a common replacement for most modern Martins and many older Dreadnoughts. They were used commonly in the past and are often termed "vintage style".
UNSLOTTED PINS: Some believe that by slotting the bridge and using an unslotted pin you create greater coupling between the string, pin, bridge plate and soundboard, which improves tone. Others say the difference is negligible or non-existent. Nonetheless, unslotted bridge pins are popular with some luthiers and players. There are varying reports about whether or not different pin types effect bridge plate damage over time.
