3 degree slotted bridge pins

Nicely fitting bridge pins can make a noticeable improvement to the sound and appearance of a guitar. 3 degree bridge pins can be used as replacements on many production guitars (Taylor and Far Eastern instruments, for example) and were standard on pre-1994 Martins and pre-2002 Collings guitars. Some high-end luthiers also prefer 3 degree pins.

Bone or buffalo horn pins can produce a slightly brighter than wooden pins. Ebony is an all-time favourite, and cocobolo is ideal if you want a 'rosewood-like' look. A Central American hardwood, it turns much better than most rosewoods and is less prone to splitting in use.
