USA Kluson Vintage Lightweight Aluminum Stop Bar Tailpiece Nickel KSTOPAL-N
Introducing the new Kluson® vintage aluminum stop-bar tailpiece! Designed for your instrument requiring a stop-bar tailpiece to accompany a separately mounted bridge. 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 aluminum. 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!
Aluminum 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 aluminum and listen to your tone come alive! 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! (includes 5/16-24 steel studs).
