Excellent quality, excellent price..

Excellent quality, worthy upgrade for any stop-tailpiece guitar. If you're in a guitar shop like I often find my self ;) and see a nice piece of wood, good neck etc, but it's let down by cheap knock-off hardware.. buy it anyway, and get some gotoh hardware like this. It will make all the difference.

Perfect replacement for a Les Paul

I used this tailpiece for a '74 Les Paul Custom rebuild. It was a perfect fit, the threaded mounting studs screwed right into the existing knurled bushings that are mounted into the body.

The tailpiece was heavier than the original and provides more sustain. An excellent choice.

Great improvement in tone.

Over original hardware. Wasn't a perfect fit, had to file down some gold plating to get it to go on and is still snug. But again HUGE improvement in tone.

Gotoh Stop Tailpiece

Gotoh gear is always good in my experience. Ideal as a replacement part for a Les Paul style guitar.
Top quality at an excellent price.

Gotoh (gold) stop tailpiece

Nicely made, but did not fit the factory stud spacing. Also arrived with one stud all scarred up. Stewart-MacDonald promptly replaced the scarred stud!
Purchased this to replace the tailpiece on an Epiphone Explorer. It did not align with the original anchors - it was wider. My customer did not want to pay for me to plug and re-drill the anchor holes so I have put it into stock pending use on my next 'scratch' build.

I replaced the nickel hardware on my Gibson Les Paul Classic with all chrome hardware. This tailpiece was a perfect fit. Saved me money over the Gibson branded part. I'm happy.

Gotoh tailpiece

Fab workmanship, customizing Legend Les Paul so lots of parts to replace/customize. Matches perfectly with roller bridge.
