Functional, but not quite right.

I bought this to replace the tailpiece on my old Flatiron Mandolin as I installed an internal pickup. Overall, the dimensions are the same as the one I was replacing, but it has one big flaw. The tab that screws to the tail block of the instrument is dead flat, so there is no way to install this on anything that has curvature, which must be about every mandolin. The one I was hoping to replace has curvature that perfectly matches the instrument. So I just drilled out the strap pin hole to accommodate the end pin jack.

This makes my mando look a little more customized! It looks great and has no negative affect on the tonal qualities of the mando! Actually it seems to have warmed up the sound from the original tailpiece it (Kentucky) came with! Very good price and workmanship.

Great value

I used this tailpiece on a Gibson mandolin banjo, and was happily surprised with the gauge of the metal and the thickness of plating. A nice alternative to a standard non-adjustable tailpiece and a very good value.

used as a retro-fit repair, works very well, looks good and is good value for your dollar!

Pretty, but poor fit

I agree with the other reviewers that this is a charming tailpiece.



However, the part that should sit flush against the sides of your instruments IS flat rather than curved (as is needed for a good fit), as another reviewer pointed out. Its construction also ensures that it cannot be easily bent into a curve. This means that this tailpiece won't fit your mandolin well unless it is triangle-shaped instead of mandolin-shaped.

Simple, effective.

Perfect fit and finish. Looks just as it is pictured.



Wasn't thinking when I bought it though. My instrument's tail ends in a rounded point, where this requires a relatively flat surface to mount.

A bit of style..for a inexpensive price

Tailpiece gives my mando kit that look of style for an inexpensive price. People have commented about mando asking where I got bought it from, and are amazed when they discover its kit built. All because tailpiece gives it a professional look. GO FOR IT.

I ordered 5 last week of the two I checked one had some plating flaws. I not sure I will take the time to return it so i guess will eat it.

overall I am happy with the design.
