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.

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

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!

I had problems getting the right part, but the advice from StweMac was first rate, as always! Thanks for your patience.

0168 fits my Epiphone Les Paul LS100 perfectly using existing bushings inside the body. Shiny dense and heavy. No sharp parts. Together with goth bridge it seems to sound good and perhaps increase sustain.

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).

Superb Product

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.
