Gibson Four String

I have a 50's 4-string tenor guitar and one of the pegs that holds the strings is missing. Can you make one or do you have anything like that in

I presume that you are talking about the bridge pins. We can match the one that is missing or fit four new ones. There are some pieces of your 4 string that must be kept "Original." There are others that are fine to wear out and replace. The replaceables include the nut, strings, frets, saddle, and bridge pins. The replacement of these items does not affect the collector value of an instrument.
