Yea, I don't really hear any diff with the ebony/abalone pegs, they certainly don't feel any heavier either. he brass on the other hand are very noticeably heavier...l

both look nicer than the  plastic Seagull used in 98.

Comment by Robert Williamson on Friday

Recd today.

2 pack of EXP with free PLASTIC  D'Addario NS Lite

and a selection of Fred Kelly Freedom finger picks  and thumb picks.

I will give my impressions in the appropriate discussion groups:



Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Friday

I think anything will be better than the standard plastic pins many guitars come with, but beyond that unless you have bionic or otherwise enhanced hearing capabilities, bridge pins will make the least difference in tone. It's seems to be more a function of the cost of the pins: the more money pins cost the better they must sound. BTW, I have never changed bridge pins so take that comment as you would any other comment from someone who has only an opinion. 8-)

Comment by Tony K. on Friday

You know, I've never tried different pegs or end pins ever.  Do they really make any sort of difference?  And if so, what would you suggest I try if I wanted to try some.  What kinds have certain results that I might want to try?

Comment by Robert Williamson on Friday

I recd the brass pegs.. I will try them on which every guitar is next up for string change, except of course, the Boxcar :)

Comment by Dave Fengler on Friday

Dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

Comment by Elton Bloye on Friday

What!  A parlour with a pick guard! What is this world coming to.  ;) 

Comment by Tony K. on Friday

It's all because the guitar has no pick guard.  All guitars should have pick guards.

*strikes a match, lights bag on fire, giddily runs and ducks behind bushes to watch and observe*.  8-P

Comment by Robert Williamson on Friday

Boy , I stirred the pot here :)

I seem to recall owning a slotted headstock classical with open, slipping  tuners at some low point in my life. They may have affected my perceptions. As i said 'cheap'

Head stocks have to be either small and functional like Seagull, of big and gaudy like Gretsch or Epiphone :)

Comment by Greg Ballantyne on Friday

I had reservations with open back tuners prior to buying an NE - thery have open back tuners. I think differently now, those tuners function as well as any closed back tu ners I've had. Visually they have grown on me as well.... of course it helps that I REALLY love the guitar.....
