The quickest way to improve the tone of your acoustic guitar

They are consistent from piece to piece to offer you the rich tonal characteristic of the finest genuine bone or ivory - without the problems caused by variations in grain.
Bone and ivory bridge pins have on inherent problem - they're made from organic material, and therefore have inconsistent soft dead spots in them because of their natural grain. TUSQ Bridge Pins, on the other hand, are precision engineered under high pressure and heat specifically to deliver the maximum amount of vibration directly to the top of your guitar. They are consistent from piece to piece to offer you the rich tonal characteristic of the finest genuine bone or ivory - without the problems caused by variations in grain.

When combined with a TUSQ Nut and Saddle, TUSQ Bridge Pins will deliver bell-like high end, big open lows, and a noticeable increase in overall sustain.

What size bridge pin do I need?
Traditional bridge pins will fit the majority of acoustic guitars including: Fender, Larrivee, Taylor, Gibson, Tacoma, Ovation, Breedlove, Rainsong, Carvin, Takamine, and many others. Traditional is the most popular size for most acoustic guitars. The taper on the shank is 3 degrees.

How to measure your bridge pins
The best way to determine what bridge pins will fit your guitar is to remove one and measure the shank diameter. You can see from the diagram below exactly where to measure and compare dimensions.
|Traditional Style Bridge Pins|
|Measure|| Shank Diameter ||Length|
|inches||0.202" ||1.186" |
|millimeters||5.14mm ||30.12mm |
|Presentation Style Bridge Pins|
|Measure|| Shank Diameter ||Length|
|inches||0.192" ||1.046" |
|millimeters||4.93mm ||26.58mm |
Note: All Graph Tech bridge pins have a 3º taper. If you find the pin shank is slightly too thick, you can easily sand any extra material with some fine grit sandpaper for a customized fit.
