This is my first pinless acoustic bridge. 'Twas a bit of a pain when the ball ends were kinda stuck in there. Took a bit of effort to get them out but no biggie. I usually use Elixir, so normally I wouldn't have those coloured ends exposed. Doesn't bother me, thankfully :winky:

don't think I've ever seen an acoustic pin less. Can't really see the reasoning, surely the ends are going to always eat into the bridge until stuck, there's not a lot of wood around some of those holes and even the stress is on the glue not the top, obviously they've made it work ok if Oleg liked it

To be fair, they do look fucking horrible on there....

Ball ends always look horrible, but would you have a stroke?
