The traditional standard for biscuit and spider-bridge resonator guitars.

A handsome traditional tailpiece that extends 4-1/2" (114.30mm) over the top of the guitar. Sturdy chrome-plated steel. A strap button is required.

The center of the strap button mounting hole is 1-3/16" (30.16mm) from the top of the instrument when the tailpiece is installed. Minor string slot filing will adapt this tailpiece for a left-hand guitar.

The Stew Mac tailpiece was a perfect fit for my dobro project.

Great hardware for my custom resonator guitar. This tailpiece is a strong one, it doesn't bend even in higher chording.

Resophonic Long Neck Banjo

I choose the Dobro style tail piece for that more of a Dobro look. It was just what was needed for my Resophonic long Neck Banjo project. This added to beautiful inlaid neck and the resonator brakets really brought it all together. It looks great and sounds great.

Used for 8-string conversion

I bought this StewMac plated steel tailpiece after my 8-string resonator guitar had suffered three cp brass tailpiece failures in three years and had been frustratingly unusable whilst awaiting replacements from the USA.

I have bored and slotted the new StewMac 6-string steel tailpiece for the additional two strings and I'm hopeful that this tailpiece will last a lot longer than the brass units did. Tone is only marginally different with the steel tailpiece - perhaps a little less mellow.

Perfectly functional and looks good.

I build a beautiful guitar and this is the thing people ask about. :-)

It really looks great. Just TAKE YOUR TIME locating the center line. If your off at all, you will have to plug the screw hole and move it.

Great Piece Of Tail

As per the title, all kidding aside, the steel tailpiece was a wonderful replacement to the plated brass tailpiece that is prone to breakage. In my case it was a simple installation on my spider resonator that took all of fifteen minutes and I was back to playing music. I do believe the tailpiece even helped the tone.
