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 replacement part for Epiphone

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Bought one of these (part # 0168-G) for an Epiphone '58 Explorer. This makes the stock tailpiece feel like a chunk of plastic! Seems a bit heavier and more solid. The screws that came with it fit the Epiphone bushings perfectly (which is great because I'd rather not fiddle with those).

Beautiful gold finish. Solid with nice mass too! It (along with the gotoh bridge I bought from Stew Mac) really increased the sustain on my epi sheraton II. I can really feel the resonance through the body now. It also didn't hurt by adding more sparkle. Excellent tailpiece! I highly recommend it anyone wanting to upgrade their guitar.

Nice stop tail piece!

(Customer's Reviews)


Nice bridge good weight to it. But it is a tad longer than the stock epiphone stop tail piece. The bushing is a bit smaller. But I managed to get it fit with the stock studs and been working great. Only wish they make them all the same dimensions!!!! Nonetheless love it. Along with the gotoh bridge brighten up the guitar a tad.

Bought this with the 1511 bridge as a replacement for an Epiphone Les Paul, improved sustain and the price is great. Highly recommended as a replacement to the stock Epiphone parts.

excellent product, I received it in a few days and I found it very easy installation. My problem was that I had the strings through-body type (see holes in photo) and blew the Nashville bridge of my little SG (I have a SG type guitar 3/4 scale). With this stop tailpiece and a reverse stringing, I have resolved the issue. The result is excellent!

Excellent quality, worthy upgrade for any stop-tailpiece guitar. If you're in a guitar shop like I often find my self ;) and see a nice piece of wood, good neck etc, but it's let down by cheap knock-off hardware.. buy it anyway, and get some gotoh hardware like this. It will make all the difference.
