Dual rim rod set

This rim rod set is more expensive than the Chinese imports, but the quality makes the price well worth it! It deserves the 5-star rating!

Quality and nickel plating of the single rim rod set and I suspect the double rod set(never purchased one of those-bluegrassers do seem to like hotrodding)are superb. One improvement I would like to see is a better bracket for the mounting of the tailpiece. It almost resembles something you might find in a blister pack at your local hardware store. Something resembling the cast L bracket or the dowel stick end bolt might look more appealing.
