I got stuck in a pinch, my Ibanez Acoustic Electric neck went waaayy out of whack, no idea what happened but no amount a truss rod twisting would get it any where near straight. I am saving for a high end Acoustic Electric, so I didn't want to buy a new guitar right now. So the solution to my problem was clear, take the electronics out of the Ibeenhad and install them in my trusty Jasmine S-35 beater. ( I LOVE that cheap ass guitar, got it for 33.00). So I cut holes in my Jasmine and install the electronics. Sounds OK, but it could be better. I install the Tusk Saddle from the Ibanez as well, sounds better. The Bridge pins from the Ibanez are way too fat for the Jasmine, so I dropped twelve bucks on these and BAM! cheap a$$ plywood guitar sounds pretty darn good. I also noticed that the volume of the strings is much more well balanced than with the stock plastic pins. Better than the Ibanez Talman TCY10 EVER sounded. If you have a cheap beater and want to get the best possible sound out of it, install these.

These are nice pins, but didn't fit my guitar. The MF people were nice,(I called twice) but A) they weren't real sure about pin sizes, and B) there's not much info on them. (Graph Tech has good info on their site and on their packaging) So my overall rating reflects the service and what use I got out of them, as well as the product. Just be sure you're getting what you need.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Ebony Bridge/End Pin Set:

      The pins are shorter than my Martin plastic pins. Might be a different taper too. As I tighten the strings the pins keep pulling up. Tried everything to wedge them in but they just don't work. My guitar is a '97 SPD-16.

          Put them in my old Takamine G series and replace plastic pins. Warmed up the tone and increased sustain. The main thing is to make sure they are seeded firmly. The bottom E was a little tight.
          For the cost of a set of premium strings a nice upgrade. I plan on buying another set for my other guitar. Just a note I use 80/20s.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Ebony Bridge/End Pin Set:

              These pins do not fit my Alvarez steel string acoustic guitar. The diameter is too small so they do not fit snugly in the bridge holes. Also of note is that they are also about 3/16" shorter than the OEM plastic pins. These seem well made and are nice looking and they even give you an extra pin, but it would be helpful if Planet Waves and Musician's friend might include some compatibility information by guitar. I'd give the pins 4 or 5 stars for quality but the 3 star rating because they were useless to me.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Ebony Bridge/End Pin Set:

              I replaced the stock pins on my cherished Martin, and I simply can't put the difference into words. I believe the excellent tonal improvement is a result of using real ebony wood. With the added mass and resonance united with the strings and the with the guitar's top, this product speaks for itself :)

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Ebony Bridge/End Pin Set:

              For the inexperienced, this bridge pin set will need to be worked on to fit your guitar's bridge. This pin is shorter than the plastic ones that came with the guitar, but that is not an issue. The slots will have to be filed down to accomodate the strings, if your bridge doesn't have slots for the string windings. One of the pins seats higher than the rest, and needs to be reamed or something... I wonder what kind of quality control they have?

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Ebony Bridge/End Pin Set:

              I could see how some people might have a problem with the shallow string groove but if your guitar has grooves in the bridge then they should work fine. I bought the pearl inlayed pins and the inlay on one of them wasnt completely round so its a good thing they put in an extra one. I bought these for my Taylor 110E which came with cheap plastic ones. The ones made by Taylor were cheaper but they say they are only for the 300 models and up...I didnt want to buy them and have them maybe not fit so I went with these. Overall I'm happy with them.

              Average Pins for a Bigger Price

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Ebony Bridge/End Pin Set:

              These pins will improve the tone of your guitar if you are currently using plastic bridge pins. However, they are not competetively priced, and the fit in the guitars I've tried them with was inconsistent. I didn't use the end pin which comes with the set because it was too small to fit the end pin hole in my either of the guitars is tried it with. Try pins from a professionaly luthier instead, they will be consistently sized and cheaper as well.

              See all my reviews

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Ebony Bridge/End Pin Set:

              I had read varying reviews about different types of bridge pins (TUSQ, ivory, bone, ebony, fossilized ostrich beak or whatever) and I figured I give one of them a try on my inexpensive solid top acoustic (Yamaha FG700s). I didn't change the strings out immediately, just slacked the low E string, replaced the plastic pin with the ebony pin and tuned it back up. Side by side string comparisons were noticeable: much deeper bass response and a slightly mellower tone, which I like. The biggest change I've noticed is how much more the body resonates with these pins installed. The vibration is greatly amplified - I can feel it against my ribcage as I play. I'm willing to bet that these pins would improve the tone of any guitar - Mitchell all the way up to Martin. Try them for yourself. If you don't like the sound (tone is highly subjective and very personal), you can always return them and go back to plastic.

                  These are well made out of quality selected ebony. The slots are cut precisely leaving nothing to sliver off. They cost more but in this case you get what you pay for. There is a noticeable improvement to sound.

                            Turns out the holes in my Tacoma are larger than these pins. They do not fit snugly. They seem a bit lesser in quality than I have come to expect from Planet Waves as it appears that some of the wood around the string groove has chipped away. Had they fit my guitar, I would have still used them as they should have still been fully functional. Taylor's bridgepins seemed to be better for me in each case.

                              I would buy these again for the price, but if I had a bit more to spend I would probably go for a little bit nicer set. These are solid, though definitely "value-minded" items.
                              I wanted an inexpensive replacement for my plastic bridge pins, and these fit the bill. The sound from my guitar is much clearer and the sustain is excellent.
                              Some of the grooves are not cut straight, and one of the pins fit too tightly until I sanded them. The strap pin was too small for my Fender. However, I went for a cheap set and I expected to need to do a little fit-work.
                              Good value for the price.

                              The price is right for a novice. These pins look a helluva lot better than plastic pins. I was really surprised at the tonal change. I'm ordering another set for my other accoustic. The groove was a tad shallow, a round file fixed that in a few seconds!

                              No good for my guitar

                              These are really nice looking pins, which is why I bought them. I was setting up an Ibanez acoustic, which had abalone inlay in the rosette and headstock, so I thought I'd get the pins to match.The channel for the string is REALLY shallow. I was putting Martin 80/20 12s on - not a really weird choice. The E and A were flat out too big to fit in the groove of the pin. I tried to finesse it by putting the warp past the end of teh pin, but it slipped too much. I was able to jam the A in with the wrap in the pin, but I couldn't get the pin all the way down. I ended up pulling it out with a needle-nose pliers which lead to the second problem. If you get the pin jammed in for whatever reason, you will likely damage the pin trying to get it out. I understand they are only wood, but it still sucked. The pins are really short - about 3/4 of an inch actually goes into the bridge. I think this also contributed to the slippage. After 4 strings, I ended up pulling them all and going back to the original plastic.They would probably be alright if you used lighter strings with a normal wrap (the Martins have tape or something around the wrap) or if you cut a deeper groove in the pin.

                              I have an old Yamaha FG-110 red label that I wanted to spruce up a bit, I figured some new bridgepins would add a more elegant look and enhance the tone. They are better than I expected. The sound is definitely better the sustain is long the tone is ricker and fuller and the bass is punchier. Overall these are an easy, inexpensive, and attractive way to quickly enhance the tone of your acoustic guitar
