    Can anyone identify the material used for bridge pins, bridge and nut?

    If it's a Fender, probably plastic.

    An easy way to tell is to take out a bridge pin and look at it. If it's at all deformed, it's plastic.

    And if the bridge pin is plastic, chances are the nut and saddle are, too.

    Note to charlie. I too always referred to the part the strings rest on as the saddle. But, a luthier friend of mine says it's the bridge and it sits in the saddle. What do ya think?
