Just by sheer numbers, most musicians I see and hear (briefly) these days are buskers, many impoverished, so often they will make do with whatever material they can access for bridge pins - varying colours of plastic etc, out of necessity but not specifically for sonic performance. Do I notice rag tag materials? Sure but Iím not close enough to make note. Some very famous songwriters of the past made due with whatever they could find (Townes V Z).

With regard to tuners Iím now entirely prejudiced toward open gear, so if I notice an older Martin with closed back tuners, my interest wanes.
