Gotoh Aluminum 'Stop' Tailpiece

About This Item

Lightweight vintage design. Just like the original 1950s aluminum alloy model, this reproduction is 2-3 ounces lighter than familiar standard versions.

The mounting studs are spaced 3-1/4" (82.55mm) center-to-center. Position the studs 1-1/2" (38.10mm) behind the center of the bass side bridge mounting post. Use an 11mm drill bit to install the bushings. The strings can be installed from the front or rear.

Upgrade for my Epiphone Les Paul 1960 Tribute Plus

(Customer's Reviews)

LIGHT, HQ made, more sustain, brighter sound. I use it for wrap around strings.


Cannot believe the difference

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this to replace the stock zinc/pot metal tailpiece on my 2013 Gibson Les Paul Traditional model. At first I did it in the hopes I might notice some better tone but really also to lose 2 ounces from a heavy guitar (it was 9 lbs 14 oz. . . now 9 lbs 12 oz. . . hey, every bit helps!). I can't believe how noticeable the tone change is. First, the guitar rings forever now. Amazing increase in ringing sustain of notes and chords. Second, it is clearer in tone without being actually brighter. Amazing little mod that is well worth the money. Try it!


great product

(Customer's Reviews)

Perfect finish quality and super light. If you want what the aluminum tail piece has to offer then this is the way to go. If money is not an object and you want some flair then get the Schroeder one.
