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:

      My 1986 Martin HD35 still has the original plastic pins in it and they are warping and starting to show their age, so I decided to give these a try. They look good and I know Tusq will have a superior to the old plastic pins I have in their now. Good purchase!

          Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

          I wanted to replace the original plastic bridge pins on my 1973 Martin D-28 (which had worn out after forty-three years of service) with original Martin-spec plastic pins, but nobody makes them. These come close.

              Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

              I replaced the original bridge pins on my ~1999 Tacoma DR20E. The originals were clearly plastic (based on the "drop test"). Length and diameter of the head are different: the TUSQ pins are a little shorter, and the heads are a little bigger. So, my pin puller won't work w/ the new ones - not a big deal.

              I replaced the pins first, then the saddle and nut. However, I did a sound check before starting, and again right after replacing the pins, and there was a very noticeable improvement. The attack was sharper, and the sustain was longer. Tonally, slightly fuller sound.

                    These seem to work fine; I've put them on a couple of guitars. They replaced a plastic set and an ebony set, both of which had gotten a little ragged with use. I can't vouch for any tonal changes, but that wasn't the intent. I'd like to see chamfers on the bottoms of the pins, but it only takes a few minutes to file them. Had to go elsewhere to find black pins with no dots as MF doesn't seem to stock them.

                    I replaced the stock bridge pins on my Martin acoustic with these Tusq pins. I was skeptical, but they truly do improve the fullness of the sound. If you are using plastic pins now, you'll love the Tusq pins.

                    Bridge pins work once seated properly

                    Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

                    I bought 2 sets of these for 2 Acoustics I own. I had a hard time installing them and ended up trashing a new set of guitar strings because the Low E and A would keep sliding up out of their respective holes. Reinserting them caused the windings at the lower end of the string to break and make the string dead. I don't understand that behavior as they seem to be seated correctly. They feel lighter than I thought they would. The bridge pins appear to improve sound, but to my ears its seems marginal for the price. I guess I thought these were real bone. They are some kind of composit material.
