A seen on many of the finest banjos of the 1920s-30s, this “clamshell-type” banjo tailpiece is suitable for both 4-string and 5-string banjos. Its front section is designed for the strings to put downward pressure on the bridge for more volume, and the thumbscrew on the back provides the ability to adjust that tension. The ribbed cover allows you to rest your hand on the tailpiece if you like, without being stuck by those annoying string ends. A classy piece in every respect. Regularly seen for up to $56, this beautiful, never-used repro just turning up from older inventory, yours for only $39.
