**If your guitar isn't listed, we don't carry bridge pins that will fit and we recommend you contact the guitar manufacturer for bridge pin advice and availability.  We cannot guarantee a fit as pin holes can wear over time with string changes & some manufacturers "adjust" pin holes to fit the bridge pins they have on hand.
