I was looking for something to dress my 2001 Taylor 410 full body. They are stock pins and made of ebony. How could I go wrong. The accent makes my baby look good. I had to wait a week longer than expected. it was worth the wait and the price wasn't bad either.

I bought the abalone version of these to dress up my new Taylor GS mini and out of the box they did not work at all. Without strings they dropped into the holes with no resistance, but not overly loose either... ok

with strings they seemed to fit good except for the low E position. that one wouldn't go much more than half way in. Then while tuning the other 5 strings the A string pin lifted out!

The fix? Turns out that the slot routed into the side of the pins wasn't deep enough or long enough to accommodate the larger bass strings. By long enough I mean that the slot stopped too far away from the head of the pin. I ended up using a small drill bit to cut the slots deeper and longer until they fit and stayed under string tension. after that they function ok.

As for appearance, a couple of them had pretty abalone dots. The others were dull and nothing to get excited about. One of them looks like they smashed some abalone into dust with a hammer and super glued it into the hole!

bottom line, once i got them to fit they're not terrible. The fact that they needed modification to work earns them the 2 star rating.

14 years and never broke

Comments about Taylor Ebony Bridge Pins Set of 6:

I bought a new Taylor 710 in early 1994 and the original bridge pins are in the guitar.I bought a second set just to have around, but when I bought a new Laguna LG6-RW the plastic bridge pins broke the first time i changed the strings. I replaced the cheesy plastic pins with a set of the Taylor Ebony Mother of Pearl dot pins and it really is amazing how much a small thing like the bridge pins can make. Not only does the guitar look better, but it sounds better as well.So I own two nice Taylor's ( 710 & 814-CE) and the $700.00 Laguna Rosewood Cedar topped guitar and they all have these bridge pins in them. I always have an extra set on hand, which is great since I recently purchased a guitar online and will swap them out as soon as I change the strings.I have gladly recommended these pins to my best friends.By the way the cost for these pins is no more than any of the other pins that are made by respected guitar manufacturers.

                I bought a Big Baby exactly 2 months ago from here and while I love it, I felt that something was missing . I was having some tuning issues with it which I attributed to the cheap plastic pins, which taylor uses on these, so I decided after reading some reviews all over the net, to finally break down and buy a set of these in Black . They came in today and contrary to what some have said, installation was a breeze with zero issues. I did not have any of these popping out when I was tuning up my guitar. I think these comments were from folks who didn't install them properly. These not only improved the tone on my Big Baby but as I thought they would, they have also increased the tuning stability on it as well. Why Taylor doesn't install these on all of their models, I don't know but if you have a Big Baby, I suggest you get a set of these.

                          I bought these to have as spares in the kit, but I am sure they will go on one of my acoustics full time the next time I change strings if that guitar has plastic pins. I examined them, and they appear to be well made of reasonable quality. Being ebony, there should be a noticeable improvement over the plastic pins, that are usually used. It has been my experience, that putting real ebony, or bone pins on even a cheap guitar will take it up a notch or two in sound quality. They are a cheap fix to improve a cheap guitar. And if you have a really decent quality guitar, They will usually improve it, if it currently has plastic pins.

                            When you need a string pin or whatever these are called, you're in a jam when you lose one and can't finish restringing your guitar!! That will never happen again.

                              These pins were purchased for my GS Mini and are very reasonably priced.
                              The abalone dots on a few pins were a little dull.
                              The main problem was that the pins would not stay seated when the strings were tuned up to
                              Pitch. I noticed that the grooves were not deep enough, nor did the grooves go all the up to
                              The skirt. About 15 minutes of work with a small drill bit did the trick and they work great.

                                      I appreciate the concept that vibration transference is enhanced by the density of ebony bridge pins. If this truly enhances the quality of sound, I am all about that.

                                      I really just wanted to replace the plastic pins on my GS Mini Koa. I think the little dots are pretty so I went with them. Looks great!
