I was talking to a buddy about his new acoustic guitar and he was telling me how he was going to swap out the bridge for a bridge made of bone and swap out the pins on the bridge for copper or brass or blah blah blah.

He was saying that these things make the guitar sound differently. I just didn't really think those things had much to do with the actual sound of the instrument as opposed to intonation and keeping the guitar in tune and all that other stuff.

So basically is this true? And with different types of bridges and pins what kind of sounds are you going to get?

the bridge, pins, and nut can make a significant difference in tone as it affects how the strings resonate

So right now for example I have a stock plastic bridge in my acoustic and the stock plastic pins in there. If I was to swap those out for a bone bridge and some brass pins what kind of sound with I be looking at? Would it be brighter sound or what? And is it really worth it / all that noticeable??
