Product Description

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 for many of the high-end custom luthiers as it has been commented that it is easier to provide a good fit 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.

Beautiful bridge pins!

These are really beautiful pins. The MOP is uniform and bright. The brass or gold rings are shiny and perfectly inlaid. They really dress up my Yamaha LL6.

For size reference, although my existing pins measured within .01 in all dimensions of these I still had to do some sanding to fit in a Yamaha LL6 flat top acoustic.
