I just got my 95 Gibson J-200 Birdseye Maple limited edition guitar back from Custom Inlay Inc. I had them make new bridge pins out of fossilized walrus jawbone with the tops of them inlayed with I think it was abalone. The saddle was replaced with a compensated bone saddle that they made themselves. I must say it made quite a difference in sound versus the original Gibson had used. If your not familiar with them they make inlays for Gibson and Jackson and do a lot of the inlay work on Gibson Banjos and Mandolins and they make their own guitars,banjos and mandolins called England. Brian England is a very cool guy and it's a family run business in a small town in Leitchfield Ky about 40 miles from where I live. Here are some pics.http://i390.photobucket.com/albums/oo348/nomaj112/100_3112.jpghttp://i390.photobucket.com/albums/oo348/nomaj112/100_3110.jpg

Beautiful. The bridge pins have a very classic look to them.
