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.

Great alternative for OEM

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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!

Nice finish, perfect fit.

I've been restoring a nice old SG Junior. The old stopbar was missing. I was concerned that the hole alignment might not be exact, but my fears were allayed when the Gotoh fit just right. I removed the old screws (carefully!) and epoxied the new inserts. Everything worked perfectly and I'm happy with the way it all turned out.

Good replacement parts

Used this to replace tail stop installed with wood screws. Installed the bushings in the old location and the adjustable studs worked flawlessly. Looks great and works better

Not a perfect fit for Epiphone LP Std

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This is high quality, but didnt fit perfectly for Epi LP Std - it was too narrow. I had to file down the piece quite a lot and still keep the posts not scewed the whole way down to fit the tailpiece. All in all, it sounds good now.

Did the trick

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I got this to replace an old worn out stopbar on a cheapie LP copy that I had problems keeping in tune. This fixed that problem and helped with the overall intonation, too. Great product!
