Kluson vintage aluminium stop-bar tailpiece.  This is a super high-quality tailpiece that is very hard to distinguish from the originals of the 50’s and 60’s and best of all ... It’s made in America!  The plating process is a 5 step process which is every bit as comparable to what you would find on blue ribbon winning show cars and made from high grade aluminium.  This gives you the same added string definition and note articulation the vintage guys crave and was also used by some of the greatest USA guitar manufacturers from the golden era of guitar building.  Aluminium is commonly used when the wood types used in an instrument have a tendency to reflect a darker tone like mahogany or when the electronics used subdue the desired clarity.  Swap out that standard zinc for aluminium and listen to your tone come alive!  The studs that come with this unit are made of steel and have USA (imperial) threads to fit into USA Gibson body inserts. If you want the best, get the new Kluson stop bar tailpiece to accompany your bridge and look for the new Kluson bridges coming your way.

I bought this to replace a Gibson USA Applied Plating tailpiece on a 2012 Les Paul Studio. To ensure the before and after effect wasn’t due to new strings I put back the set that I’d taken off to fit it. The result was a brighter sound with less ‘snap’ and more of a ‘ring’. A definite improvement and for the price, compared to some rivals an absolute bargain. Made in USA and looks like an original Gibson spec part down to the casting ridge on the underside. Recommended.

Fitted directly onto Epiphone ES-335 PRO studs. Clearer sound. A worthwhile upgrade. Highly Recommended.

Delivered promptly. Installed in a Gibson USA 2016 Studio Faded. The tailpiece itself is much lighter than the stock zinc/zamak one. The studs are identical in length to the stock ones so screw in to the bushings as easily as the stock ones and it fits with no issue.
