  • Lightweight... about 1oz.

  • Includes mounting studs(M8 x 1.25 metric) and bushing

The aluminum tailpieces weigh 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.

    Gotoh GE101A Tailpiece

    Purchased this tailpiece to replace the stock tailpiece on an Ibenez AS153. The posts and tailpiece were a perfect fit. The result was a distinct improvement in appearance and slightly better tone and easier string changes.
