Pin Materials and Finish

The pin material is Birch hardwood with a black dot made of black Oak.
The Birch wood used is European grown and is a very strong and durable hardwood. Birch has a hardness that is about the same as Oak which makes it ideal for guitar pins. When cut, it is white in colour and the fine grain allows a high sheen finish to be made on the ball and collar of the pin.
The ball on these pins is polished to a high finish using linseed oil and beeswax. The cone is left as machined and not polished or sanded as this maximises the friction between the pins and the pin hole and so prevents the pin from pulling out under the string tension. This means that visible machining marks on the cone are noticeable, which are beneficial for the friction. These marks are obviously hidden in the pin hole when the pin is installed.
