Hi all. The title says it all: I've got a Martin soprano from the 1920s-'30s that's lost its wood pegs. Does anyone know of a source for replacement wood pegs that look close to the original items (and can be modified to fit without modifying the instrument)?

Thanks!

I don't know the specs, but violins pegs may fit. If nothing turns up, I would contact a decent luthier who can fit them for you.



(the clue is in your signature line)

As the previous post says a decent luthier should be able to turn some up for you.

If you are still looking for martin wooden pegs, I would check with Jake Wildwood. He has some listed on Reverb right now at a lovely price.
