     Product Description

    • Aluminum Tailpiece with mounting studs and anchors
    • Made in the USA - not a Genuine Gibson® part
    • Lightweight vintage design - weight is about 1.2 oz.
    • Nickel plated aluminum alloy
    • Includes mounting nickel 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.

    1. Great tailpiece at a good price 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jul 22, 2016

      Use this on a makeover of a '14 70s Tribute SG along w/ a Pinnacle Brass Nashville ToM and the combo made a pretty significant difference in acoustic volume, sustain, clarity and bite.

      Paired up w/ new wiring and the Dirty Fingers pickups this bridge and tailpiece combo have turned this cheap Gibson into a total hard rock tone monster.

      Would definitely buy again for any of my fixed tailpiece guitars it will fit on.


    2. Great price on a high-quality tailpiece 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jun 8, 2016

      High quality, very lightweight and replaced the stock zinc tailpiece on my SG reissue perfectly.


    3. Great product, price and quality 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Dec 16, 2015

      Great quality! fit & finish were perfect! I ended up buying two, there is no need to spend extra $$ on any other AL tailpieces.
