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:

    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.

          Reviewed these earlier - Just wanted to add that if you get the wrong size, MF says they're not returnable. Careful.

              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.

                    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.

                        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.

                        Better than my plastic pins, and a good value upgrade.

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

                        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.

                        These look like quality pins made in USA Yaaaa! ( I prefer all American Products) By D?Addario for Planet waves. I?ll comment more after I test them but am sure they will help produce some smooth sustain on an old twelve string Toredo, Guitar I have. I am doing some professional Luthering on my own as I have done it before and am quite good, the neck is strait The wood is aged and seems to have a nitrocellulose finish which adds to tone and hardness of wood.. I purchase these and a graphtech tusq blank saddle I am probably going to remove a nut fret and build a custom oversized brass nut to correct the neck length and give a bright open sustain. These pins have a precision slot milled in them to clear the string. I am impressed these are not just a carving but machined piece that appear to have a finish over the nice pearl dots I ordered. I?m working on a song to raise money to help in the Gulf. I?m hoping these contribute to some nice tones.
