Title: Bridge Pins
Post by: lone eskimo on March 25, 2009, 04:29:07 AM
Hi All!

Does anyone know what brand of bridge pins will fit my 0M-03? I'm considering several brands including: John Pearse Ebony or Water Buffalo, Planet Waves Ebony, Martin Ebony, Taylor Ebony....Also do you know if any of these brands are significantly better than the next- or are they similar?
Thanks!

Mike

I've got a set of bone pins from Bob Colosi that fit perfectly. Here's a link link to bone bridge pins (http://www.guitarsaddles.com/products.asp) If you scroll down you'll see a table of applications. For Larrivee, Size 1, 3 deg. taper, .210" diameter, slotted.
I've also got a set of these Tusq pins on one of my Larrivee's. These are very similar to bone.  link to Tusq bridge pins (http://www.graphtech.com/products.html?CategoryID=9)  You might have to email them and ask which ones specifically. They answer very quickly.

These ebony with abalone dot will work.  Any of their pins are good.  Be aware the prices are for a set of 6, I bought several sets to save on shipping although I have several guitars.

You could go right to the source and buy them from Larrivee Wearables for $15.

Try the "Custom Inlay" website. They not only have great products (particular buffalo horn), but they also have a sizing guide by guitar brand. I had to order different sizes for my Larry and my Taylors, and the website came in very handy. Good luck in your search!

I have a set of Planet Waves Boxwood w/Black Pearl inlays installed in my L-03 SO.  You can see them here:

Edit:  Oh well, I coudn't find the pic of the Larivee so I posted the Silver Creek.  All my guitars have the same pins.
