Tone Pros T1Z-N Metric Locking Tailpiece Nickel for Imports NEW!
This is a brand new Tone Pros T1Z-N metric locking tailpiece in nickel as pictured. The studs are metric for Epiphone electrics and other import stop tailpieces. The tailpiece, however, will fit any stop bar tailpiece with a 3 1/4" studspacing if you reuse your existing studs.
This stoptailpiece ups the ante by locking the tailpiece to the posts via two small set screws on the sides of the tailpiece. This design is their best , the tailpiece height is very easy to adjust prior tolocking.
Sure, one benefit is the tailpiece won't fall off when you change strings. Yahoo.
But the big payoff is the tailpiece now couples to the body perfectly, no matter if you screw thetailpiece all the way down or keep it up. The tailpiece is now perfectly rigid, and the difference in tone is great - better harmonics, more sustain, livelier.
Once you try Tone Pros hardware, you're hooked - I've got them on all my guitars - solidbodies,hollowbodies, bridge/tailpiece combos, wrap arounds, whatever. Never disappointed. People spend all kinds of money on pickups and electronics, try acouple of bucks on the string path and listen to the difference.
