Acoustic Guitarists...I need help!

Well, here's the thing...I have an acoustic guitar with plastic bridge pins and I accidentally broke one of the pins so that half of it is lodged down inside the hole with the string. What's the best way to get the damn thing out?!

Have you tried pulling the string? That might work. Maybe push the pin down with something, in theory it should fall into the guitar because the hole it is in should go all the way through.

If all else fails take it to a music repair shop!

You may be able to reach inside the soundhole and manually push the pin up and out. I have had to do this with a pin once that was stuck, not broke.

Yes, take out all the other strings and reach into the soundhole to push the pin out.
