     Product Description

    • Aluminum Tailpiece with mounting studs & anchors
    • Made in the USA - not a Genuine Gibson® part
    • Lightweight vintage design - weight is about 1.2 oz.
    • Chrome plated aluminum alloy
    • Includes mounting chrome plated brass studs(SAE 5/16 - 24) and zinc plated steel bushings
    • Tailpiece ear thickness is .290"(7.4mm)

    The aluminum tailpieces weight 1/4 that of the zinc and produce a much different sound. They transfer vibrations differently,  resulting in a woodier, more airy vintage tone -  richer, rounder mids but with more upper harmonics as well.  Back in the '50s, Gibson® used aluminum for their stop bar tailpieces. For whatever reason, they switched to zinc, which is still used today on all but the historic line.
