I was made an offer on my Taylor 414ce that I almost accepted. So last night I decided to put a new set of strings on it and oil the fret board, then rededicate myself to spending more time with it. Now I'll admit that I'm a spacey guy, I misplace my wallet and/or keys at least a couple times a week. So I took great care with the bridge pins, set each one on a fresh sheet of printer paper as I removed it. Well part way into the operation someone came to the door and when I returned to my task one of the pins was missing. I've looked everywhere, it's just gone. I googled away and ordered a set with abalone dots from Sweetwater. In my search I found some cool hand carved pins, and pins made of bone but that's about it. Seems to me there should be a tgp thread here about the magic of custom carved bridge pins of various composition, with lengthy and heated discussion on the merits of each. I searched a bit and didn't find much here. What gives tgp?
