     Product Description

    • Aluminum Tailpiece
    • Made in the USA - not a Genuine Gibson® part
    • Lightweight vintage design - weight is about 1.2 oz.
    • Nickel plated aluminum alloy
    • Doesn't includes mounting studs or bushing
    • Tailpiece ear thickness is .290"(7.4mm)

    These are made to fit USA Gibson® guitars and might not fit all imports guitars.  example - most Gibson guitars have 5/16"(8mm) clearance on the studs.  PLEASE CHECK BEFORE ORDERING!

    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. The very best aluminum tailpiece vintage specs for Les Pauls !!! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Dec 26, 2016

      I have tried all the offers and this one is the best because of the right materials, perfect vintage specs and very accessible pricing. Two versions available, this one without studs and anchors. Buy the studs and anchors at vintage specs rather than the historic specs.

    2. Excellent ! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Mar 2, 2016

      I put this on my 2016 gibson sg along with the locking studs. The sound was fabulous and the quality was excellent! There is no need to spend more money on a name brand. Shipping was quick!

    3. Great value, look, and sound 4 Star Review

      This tail piece is very good quality and fits my Les Paul perfectly. great product and light weight. Very satisfied and a great value compared to other aluminum tail pieces.

    5. the best out there 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jun 18, 2015

      These are by far the best tailpieces for the money. the plating and finishing is very good. anybody who thinks there is any vibrations from behind the bridge to the stop tail piece to the body needs to fix there saddles . these tailpieces are made in the USA.

    6. Nice finish poor fit 2 Star Review

      Posted by on Mar 29, 2015

      Very nice tail piece but not a good fit fro USA mounting studs. The wraparound ends are too thin which causes them to ride up on the studs. Once strings are installed it's usable but there's certainly a loss in the transfer of vibration to the body.

      Admin - these are the same tailpieces used by Gibson Historic division. Same exact fit. A tighter fit can be achieved by using locking tailpiece posts.
