Thought this afternoon would be a good time to change strings for the first time in a year or so on my DV52 . Loosen the strings and start popping out the pins and one breaks in half and another splinters along the string slot! I've changed strings hundreds of times on dozens of guitars and never had this happen.
Any recommendations on replacements?
Thanks!

Try Bob Colosi-one of the best custom .akers and reasonable.

I love my Tusq black "presentation style" abalone inlaid pins in my DV-52. They were a perfect fit.

If they fit well and you need a new set (you do) then send one or two to Bob Colosi, as Stuball says. He'll match and make you happy!! Go for bone or whatever suits your fancy...... :encouragement:

Thanks Rich, that's the one I gave to my son for his college graduation present last year, and yes it sounds wonderful.

I also have Tusq Presentation style bridge pins in my D-25M, they fit my Guilds so nicely. They slide right in with no pressure and they stay put.
