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.

        Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

        I wanted to experiment with the tone of my guitar Washburn wd10sce. read some reviews about using tusq pins instead of the factory plastic pins that came with the guitar to improve tone. I think that they changed the way my guitar looks more than the way it sounds. They gave the guitar some more bling and a little more ring. Some other reviews claimed fitment issues, but I didn't have any with my guitar.

              Dropped the in my acoustic that had a Tusq nut/saddle already but with plastic pins. Brightened up the tone and increased sustain and overall projection. These should be standard on all acoustic guitars. No need to kill an animal for their bones!

                  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.

                                  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.
