Gotoh 'Stop' Tailpiece

About This Item

The familiar zinc die-cast bar tailpiece for solidbody guitars, with height-adjustable metric (M8 x 1.25) or U.S. (5/16-24) threaded mounting studs and knurled bushings.

The mounting studs are spaced 3-1/4" (82.55mm) center-to-center. Position the studs 1-1/2" (38.10mm) behind the center of the bass side bridge mounting post. Use an 11mm drill bit to install the bushings. The strings can be installed from the front or rear.

New bridge with vintage appeal: distressed look of the Relic Nickel plating is perfect for repairing old guitars, when shiny new hardware just won't do.

Perfect Fit

Replaced the wraparound tailpiece on my 55/77 Les Paul Special at a fraction of the cost. Fits and functions perfectly.

Gibson USA Install

By

Verified Buyer


I put this on a 2012 Gibson USA Traditional Les Paul. The included studs screw in to the stock bushings on the guitar so you don't have to change the bushings and the bridge fits nicely on the studs. There is much less metal on this compared to the stock zinc tailpiece so top wrapping the strings leaves a portion of the twist around the string ferrules exposed. The relic nickel matches my aged pickup covers well so I have a consistent look across hardware. Good price and it gets the job done.

good replacement stop tailpiece for Epiphone Les Paul

By

Verified Buyer


I have a '78 Gibson Les Paul and an late 90's Epiphone Les Paul. The Epiphone had the typical 'new asian style' tailpiece contour. This Gotoh fit perfectly on the Epiphone and has a very similar shape and contour to my Gibson tailpiece. Works great for my needs. Honestly I cannot tell you that it has dramatically enhanced the sound -- but it works good, sounds good and is reasonably priced

Have just rebuilt an older instrument with this tail piece. Seems to be fine but will know more when set-up is complete.

Just bought it for the studs.

The studs for the Gotoh tailpiece are great with minimal tolerance. Makes a great upgrade for a Gibson wraparound bridge. Wish they sold the studs separately in U.S. size instead of metric only.

Great alternative for OEM

By

Verified Buyer


I needed a stop tail piece for a Les Paul Custom and this was no where near the price of an OEM part, It fit perfectly. I know I can always rely on Stew-Mac for great parts and advise too!
