Crosby Audio Bridge Pins

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with these Ebony bridge pins from Crosby Audio? I'm thinking of replacing the ones on my G-45 standard with them but want to make sure they will fit properly? It lists the dimensions of them but not sure of the dimensions of the ones that came with my G-45..

I have a bunch of guitars with ebony pins.  But the guitars are all 80 to 100 years old.   I like the way they look but other than that never gave them much thought other than whether they fit properly or not.

I only use wood bridge pins on all 

of my guitars.   The only ones I’ve had problems with not fitting are the ones that have no vertical groove in them on the stem that goes into the guitar, where the string can align into.  Even if the grooved one are tight it’s very easy to simply whittle or sand a small part of the stem so they fit.  On the other hand, getting the non-grooved ones to fit, if they do not readily fit can be quite difficult to whittle down.

I hope this helps!

Hello Jim ,do your self a favour and buy a digital caliper . Cost should be between 20 -40 bucks .

You will be able to measure your existing string pins and compare to other specs .

Calipers are handy to have for many uses .
