What material is he using for the saddle? Any reason he stopped using ebony?

Hi Deach,

Keith still does use the ebony pins but he's testing a few things out with less dense woods at the saddle. This one has a douglas fir pin at the saddle.

The tones seem to be slightly brighter when compared to the ebony pins but only minimally if at all noticeable. :D

Mahalo,
Shawn
