Great Upgrade Part

Just as good as the Factory Authorized part, but at a very reasonable price point. Excellent upgrade from the factory pot metal stud tail piece.

Sustain to Spare with the Gotoh Stop Tailpeice

I just picked up a new Epi Dot 335 a few weeks back with the idea of hot rodding it right from the start. Already having some experience doing all my own repairs and setups for many years, I knew 1 area for improvement would be just from upgrading the Stop Tailpeice.

The aluminum Gotoh is much lighter then the OEM pot metal piece. While some tremelo axes work well with heavier blocks or more mass, it did make sense to me that the light weight Dot would respond better to the lighter component.

Leaving the stock bridge in place I installed the Aluminum Gotoh piece on my Dot, strung it wrap around style and tuned it. Even before plugging it in to my amp I could already hear and feel a sonic and resonance difference for the better. Its amazing how much better sustain it has. And you can feel every cord, so much that the guitar almost feels alive. Its an amazing feel that most guitars Ive owned just don't have.

I will without question purchase the Gotoh stop again for any of my future projects.

What G_____ Should Have Included with Your Guitar

The title says it all -- this is a very good and cost-effective replacement for the heavy tailpieces found on many LPs, SGs and ES guitars.
