~1960 Misc. Tailpiece Parts

$195
WOW! A whole pile of cool tailpiece parts, just waiting for someone who loves to fool with this stuff! Lessee…….here’s a cool 1950s-60s nickel-plated better-grade Gibson “diamond” tailpiece lacking its hinge; a 1950s Maccaferri tailpiece, slightly cracked underneath, from one of those crazy plastic archtops; the better part of an early ES-175/L-7 tailpiece with ingenious extra plate riveted to...

~1980 Fender D'Aquisto Elite Tailpiece

$95
We sold over a hundred of the most wonderful Fender D’Aquisto archtop guitars back in the 1980s and were quite saddened when Fender discontinued them. I have here a tailpiece from an Elite model, the best of the three that were made, needing some work. It’s made from genuine ebony, as Jimmy D’Aquisto had specified, and wants restoration in the hinge area. This can be done with careful work; it...

Unknown Older Mandolin Tailpieces

These have got to be 50-100 years old and never used, never on an instrument, still have ossified protective paper on them from the factory, to protect the nickel plating. Can’t find anything like this nowhere else. All four for only $100

~1960 Four Archtop Tailpieces

$95
Ever need a tailpiece for a quick project? Here are four of them, all quite functional and all cool/old. All with freely-moving hinges; one bolstered with four rivets, one with a solder spot already on the underside of the hinge, ready for a ground wire, and one gleefully marked “JAPAN” on the underside of its bail, a reminder of the days of 1960s imports. All four for only $95

? Flat-Top Tailpieces

$75
Of mysterious origins and all extremely cool. One of them has two “ears”, decorative and quite cool in my book, looks kinda European to me. One of them is quite red, no idea of what it’s from but looks kinda like maybe one of those mid-American guitars we usesta see so many of. The third, beats the heck out of me but I’m willing to bet that one of you experts out there can identify it. It’s...

~1960 Gibson J-45/50 Ceramic Saddle

$150
Got a really treasured older Gibson J-45 or J-50 from the 1960s that someone has tossed or stolen its original white ceramic saddle from? They're scarce as hens' teeth off a guitar; there are way more guitars out there that lost them than there are saddles that lost their guitars. Some folks swear that these original, ceramic saddles are the heart and soul of the tone of those 1960s Gibsons; I’m...

~1950 Harmony? Archtop Tailpiece

$65
I have no idea what guitar this came from but it’s exceptionally cool, it’s older, and it’s 100% strong. May have come from an American Harmony guitar or possibly some European model, it’s beautifully made, the way things used to be and no longer are. Even has little recesses at the back of the bail for each string ball. Bail moves quite freely on the hinge, extremely solid throughout. $65

~1960 Fender Archtop Tailpiece

$125
I’ve seen plenty of 1960s Fender archtop electric guitars, such as the famed Coronado model, with their original tailpieces missing, but I’ve never seen a complete one of these available off a guitar. In perfectly usable condition with its cool Fender script “F” logo quite intact, it is chrome-plated with traditional removable hinge portion. $125

~1920 Stella? 12_string Flat-Top Tailpiece

$100
This is a most unusual find, a 12-string guitar tailpiece from the 1920s or maybe earlier for a flat-top guitar. Possibly from an original Stella twelve, it has four mounting-screw holes and twelve holes in front for the strings. Nickel-plated with lots of patina, should clean up nicely, or may well best be left alone for its very authentic look. $100

~1970 Gibson SG Trem Leaf Springs (5)

Five, count 'em five, real, original Gibson SG trem leaf springs, all taken from original, American-made Gibson SG guitars years and years and years ago. Two chrome, two nickel, one I dunno; also one chrome trem-arm tailpiece bar with ‘em. All this yours for only $95

Each is untouched and in its own original plastic bag, just as we got them from Fender. The real deal,...

Gibson P-90 Covers

These have just turned up in our shop after having been in storage for years. No idea where they came from though all but one are NOS unused, all with “ears”, usually but not always for arch-top guitars. Two lower, chrome-plated covers for the neck position; one taller perfect-looking chrome one (though it has a solder spot on its underside) for the bridge position; two taller black ones; and ons...

~1970 Gibson Ebony Bridge

$95
Gibson made a lot of different models of acoustic guitars in the 1970s, and this style of ebony bridge was used on may of them. It has a reinforced area around the pin holes set into its top, does not go through, quite unusual. Once again, from the depths here, in storage for decades, perfect and unused. $95

~1970 Gibson J-200 Ebony Inlaid Bridge

$295
Holy cow!, Never thought I’d find one of these in stock but here it is. Gibson, in their infinite 1970s wisdom, decided to “dress up” their J-200 model, part of it being adding this fabulous unique solid ebony bridge with mother-of-pearl inlays. Many of those J-200s that I’ve seen surviving today have split bridges, something that’s just not repairable. This one is original from Gibson back then,...
