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.

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,

Added this tailpiece in combination with the Gotoh bridge, and my Epi '56 Gold Top really came alive! Clear, sweet tone, sustain for days. Worth every penny!

Great quality, but tone is subjective

I decided to try this tailpiece on my modded Epi Dot that has Seth Lovers, Mojotone 335 wiring harness and Gotoh replacement tune-o-matic. All those mods were improvements, but with the Gotoh aluminum tailpiece, this guitar exhibits a harshness in the upper mids that I don't like. It looks like I'm the only one here that doesn't like the tone change. Went back to the stock Epi LockTone zinc tail, and the sweetness is back. harshness gone. Great quality and price though.
