WHY CHANGE YOUR BRIDGE PINS?

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.

FIND YOUR BRIDGE / END PIN SIZE

*Note* Always measure your bridge / end 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, Epiphone, Art & Lutherie, Archambault, Artist, La Patrie, Norman, Simon & Patrick, Seagull and Showcase. The taper on the shank is 3 degrees.


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.


CHOOSE YOUR BRIDGE PIN MATERIAL

Graph Tech has created specific materials so you can get the most our of your instrument.

TUSQ produces more harmonics in the mid and upper range of the guitars. TUSQ nuts, saddles and bridge pins have harmonically rich tone, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone or other natural materials. Bone and Ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ has been designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the strings to the guitars body.

TUSQ DELIVERS THE OPTIMUM FREQUENCIES FROM THE STRINGS TO THE GUITAR TOP, PRODUCING RICHER AND FULLER TONE.

Guitar makers and players agree...acoustic guitars come alive with TUSQ man-made ivory. TUSQ is simply more efficient at transferring vibrations to your guitar top, resulting in big open lows and clear bell like highs. 


Bone and Ivory nuts and saddles have one inherent problem - they're made from animals, and therefore are inconsistent in their growth causing soft or dead spots because of their natural grain. TUSQ nuts, saddles and bridge pins are precision engineered under high pressure and heat, specifically to govern which frequencies are transferred to your guitar top (tone), and which frequencies remain in the strings (sustain). TUSQ is made from 100% organic polymers, contains no oil or animal by-products and is consistent from piece to piece, and within each piece. TUSQ offers you harmonically rich tones without the problems associated with natural materials.


HOW DOES IT SOUND?

TUSQ delivers a rich tone, crystal clear bell like high end with big open lows and a significant increase in harmonic content and harmonic sustain. Increased harmonics equals more richness and character in your tone. Its the difference between a four piece choir and a twelve piece choir singing every time your play a note.


Now you can complete your guitar with TUSQ bridge and end pins. 

Beautifully made in a variety of colors and inlay options you can have your instrument sound and look its best.
