TUSQ Bridge & End Pins

The quickest way to improve the tone of your acoustic guitar.

TUSQ bridge pins 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.

Bone and ivory bridge pins have one 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.

What size bridge pin is for me?

*Note* Always measure your bridge pins, as manufacturers frequently change their measurements.

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.

Presentation bridge pins are not quite as common. They have a shorter shank than the traditional style pins and a thicker collar. They are used for Godin, Epihone, Art &Luthrie, Archambault, Artist, La Patrie, Norman, Simon & Patrick, Seagull and Showcase. 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.
