A great buy, you'll hear the difference

This is a simple and cost effective upgrade for your Les Paul. Very light weight while improving tone.

Amazing tailpiece

Great improvement over the heavy pot metal epiphone tailpiece. Greater acoustic response, and power. Awesome!

You Need Aluminum

If you want to replace the stop tailpiece on your guitar, what could be better than going with aluminum? This is a great Gotoh product, with beautiful, flawless chrome plating. Direct replacement on my guitar. Highly recommended.

I put this on my flying v that I made, and I love the difference in the sound and feel of the guitar now. It just feels better while playing it now, I love it

Great quality

I actually bought an aluminum "vintage" Gibson tailpiece as well as this Gotoh. Always been a fan of the Japanese stuff in general but this is proof positive that the Gotoh is the way to go.. so to speak. Much much better casting than the Gibson one at maybe 3 times the price. I will be getting another one or two but Gotoh is better and cheaper. BUY IT!

On par or better than Gibson

I purchased a Gotoh Aluminum tailpiece for my Gibson ES-339 (Mainly b/c my Historic Les Paul came with an aluminum TP) and found no sonic difference whatsoever between Gibson and Gotoh. The TP was a perfect retrofit (Along with Tonepros locking studs). Save some money and buy this over Gibson,
