Yeah probably. There's pretty much a set standard for things like that. I replaced my Seagull's Tusq pins with bone pins (no idea where from) and had no problems with them.

It takes practice but you'll find it easy eventually. I think you'd be better off learning how to do this yourself rather than just asking other people for help. I'm teaching you to fish ;)
