Perfect piece for my application.

I've been playing this guitar off and on for 12 years, with less than satisfactory results. It was primarily due to tuning difficulty and stability issues. My suspicion was that anchoring the strings in the middle of the top put a significant twist and upward pressure on the wood...and in fact seemed to deaden some of the woods' natural overtones. I thought a tailpiece could eliminate that issue. It could also line all the strings similarly straight over the bridge...making the bend angle over the bridge the same for all the strings. I removed the string anchor studs from the tailpiece and filed a slot for the stings to line up the ball on the underside of the tailpiece. It also provided an opportunity to align the tailpiece's elevation with the top of the bridge. One of the brass screws broke mounting the tailpiece...replaced it with shorter steel. Project done, plays like a dream...very happy.

Good tailpiece, bad screws

Nice tailpiece, good metal, ebony insert and leather are great too. -0,75 star for poor screws metal. The hole was drilled perfectly, but the screw head gone away just about 3mm left to tailpiece on the shank place. Had to redrill the same hole and change the screw. Also "-" screw is not so comfortable as "+" and -0,25 star for not really aligned shape. It has some slight asymmetrics

I've ordered this part from stewmac, received it in a timely fashion. Installed on my Gitane Gt-255 (just needed to slightly open the middle hole up). There's about 20% more sustain after this installation. I'm really satisfied. The tailpiece is well made, the rosewood insert is really nice, and the red leather seem to be doing it's work. Big improvement over the stock part. Thanks stewmac for carrying this part. BTW, the support lady that I've called to get the measurements done, was super helpful too.
