          I bought these black/pearl tusk pins to brighten up my Epiphone DR-500MCE (Solid Mahogany cut away acoustic/electric) guitar. And the pins fit perfectly and look very good! My acoustic had wonderful tone but was a bit dark and muddy, and closed in tone, and I wanted it to be just a bit brighter and clearer, and more open sounding. These tusk pins INSTANTLY corrected this condition.I must emphasize that the change in tone was INSTANT.They are great pins if you need to brighten up an otherwise moody sounding guitar..Bottom line is..THEY WORK!

          Well, there's a lot of positive reviews about the the Tusq bridge pins making brightness, however, I haven't noticed much of a change at all, compared to the plastic pins that were on my stock
          Ibanez-EWc30QHERLG1201 (exotic-wood acoustic).
          I will say that with new strings, my guitar sounds better though, but I'd doubt that the pins really contributed at all.
          Overpriced, hence, the three stars.

              Just installed a set of Tusq bridge pins on my Guild D55. Was going to restring it at same time but thought I'd try a couple of pins to see if I could tell any difference. Ended up installing the pins on the old strings which came back to life. Pretty amazing improvement. Can't wait to hear the difference when I restring it in a couple of weeks.

                  Everything you've heard about Tusq bridge pins you can actually hear when you play. Breadth, depth and more harmonically rich. Strings 1-3 in particular. NOTE: there is some truth that saddles effect sound more than pins. That may be true, but I heard the difference as soon as the pins were installed—which came after adding a Tusq saddle. It's an amazing way to make every guitar better for very little--with one more aesthetic benefit that never seems to get mentioned: your guitar remains free of bone, which, if you recall, is an animal part.

                      I'm experienced, just not with bridge pins. Unfortunately none of the 3 people I spoke with at MF were knowledgeable either, which is unusual. So they sent me what they had in stock, these "Presentation Style" pins. Turns out these are not widely used and didn't fit my guitar. (BTW - there's some helpful info on the graphtech site) What's more common are the "Traditional" pins. Found these elsewhere and they fit. Now the MF people tell me these are a nonreturnable item, along with the second set of different pins they sent me that also didn't fit. So my 2 star rating is as much about MF as it is about the pins.

                            Don't really notice any difference versus using cheapO plastic bridge pins.

                            If you are expecting sounds from the heavens, not gonna happen . . . .

                                    I had just installed a Tusq saddle in a new Yamaha L-Series guitar. I installed the Tusq Presentation pins, mostly, for cosmetic reasons, expecting some nearly undetectable sonic improvement. I was surprised just how much the pins improved the sound—far more than I had been led to believe. For the cost and ease of installation, don't hesitate.

                                        These tusk pins are great. jingle them in your hand and they almost sound like metal.The MOP was nice quality and looks great. These tusk pins, in my opinion do well on a Mahogany guitar which seems to sound subdued and just needs a bit of waking up. It woke up my Epiphone DR-500mce and gave it that open nectar hum of a Gibson Hummingbird. I would not recommend these pins however, if your guitar is already bright sounding, as these could send it over the top. However a quiet guitar that just needs more open lows, mids and crystal highs...these babies will do the trick! Get them!

                                            I ordered these to replace the plastic bridge pins that came with my Martin Acoustic/Electric (Custom X Series) guitar. The stock pins were alright, but I couldn't understand why a Martin would come with plastic pins. One of the pins was chipped when they arrived, and MF replaced them no problem - the new set was in my hands in less than a week. They fit perfectly with a new set of Martin Marquis M1100 strings, and they look and sound awesome in my guitar.

                                                These are great because unlike real bone or even wood pins, they have no dead spots that you will hear in the sound. I've always loved real bone pins because they have a warmer sound, but since these are synthetic there is no way for that same sound to be replicated. These are very close, and are more consistent. They look nice without being too gawdy. I've got 3 sets of these. I gave 5 stars because they never claim to sound warmer than bone and I knew they wouldn't.

                                                Well, I was excited to try them, but I ordered the wrong ones. Turns out they make two variations, and it wasn't obvious to me concerning which ones to order, so naturally I would order the wrong ones cause you got a 50-50 chance, and I have never won anything! I have a Taylor guitar, and I needed the pins that are tapered straight up to the top of the pin, rather than the ones that have a lip or knurl around the top. The ones that are straight with no lip are commonly referred to as Martin pins (also fit Taylor), but, I didn't know all of this when I ordered them. SO, hope this helps someone order the correct pins for their guitar.
