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.

Aluminum alloy bridge with brass studs and steel bushings.

I installed this along with Gotoh tune-a-matic bridge and am pleased. Because did at same time it's hard to tell how much of a change there was other than my guitar sounds better and don't have to think about upgrading it anymore .the price was right. Nice looking piece.

Old school rules!

Added this to my Epi Les Paul along with a roller bridge and love the sustain and return to tune when really bending notes.
As usual, completely satisfied.

Great addition to any guitar!

I put this tailpiece on a Chibson JP#2 that I have been having some fun upgrading. The fit was a little tight but I was able to get it on by starting with the height adjust screw up high, putting the tailpiece on and then slowly tightening them down. What a difference in sustain and overall sound this thing made! I had no idea!

Increased sustain

My Epiphone Les Paul has had upgraded pickups with coil tap but didn't have a crisp edge to the tone. I took a chance with an older technology stop tailpiece and was very much satisfied with the difference in edge and sustain. To bad guitar makers can't just put quality in at the begining. As long as StewMac keeps supplying this kind of upgrade I'll keep buying.

Shocking

I couldn't believe it when I picked this thing up how light it is!
I paired it with an ABR-1 bridge and I'm very glad I did.

I love the Japanese craftsmanship! They make so many delicate and superb guitars/parts/ & let's not forget swords.

Huge tone improvement for Epiphone Les Paul

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this and the related Gotoh bridge for my Epiphone Les Pauls. Like one of the StewMac videos explained, I installed set screws at the bottom of the holes so the screws a had direct connection to the guitar body. I also top wrapped the strings.

Out of all the tweaks I have done to my Epiphone Les Pauls, this is the one that had the biggest, most noticeable change on tone. It is clearer and a bit brighter, and so much prettier (my ears' opinion :)

And strings bend and vibrato so much smoother and easier now (probably all due to top winding).

HIGHLY recommended!!!
