Thread Name: Tried Brass Bridge Pins?
Subject: RE: tried brass bridge pins?
Actually I swear by using crocodiles teeth as bridge pins. I fitted them last week and there really is no substitute - many people have remarked on the bright boomy, yet subtly captivating tone - that comes from using 6 matching 10th incisors. Of course you have to kill three crocodiles to get a full set, and even now there are natives in loin cloths diving in Ausralian rivers to try and sort me out a set for my 12 string.

My 1959 Rosetti Skiffle guitar has never sounded so good - not since I sent for it out of the small ads in the back of Titbits. People said I was crazy spending as much as 4.19sh 11d on a guitar when I couldn't even play it, but now I feel vindicated.
