Hitone Posted December 21, 2008 Report Share Posted December 21, 2008 I am working on a new guitar that I am making all the hardware (pickup rings, bridge, headstock, etc.) out of one type of Texas Ebony. I bookmathed the headstock and the tailpiece. It looks great. I am just stuck on how to hinge the tailpiece. My question is how do most people attached the tailpiece? I see that Benendetto uses a violin style fastener. Which seems like a pain to use, especially when changing the strings. Myka uses some kind of brass bracket. This is what I am wanting to use, but where can I get or how can I make one? Artinger uses a wooden bracket, which is killer looking. I am just worried that this method would break over years of usage. I haven't found an info out there about this. If anyone knows of instructions (other than Benedettos method) please post a link.
