avengers63 Posted April 20, 2009 Report Share Posted April 20, 2009 I'm working on a flat-top guitar, TOM bridge. I want a trapeze tailpiece made from wood. It's +/- 9.25" from the bottom of the body to the intonation center. The body will be >2" thick and about 65%-75% hollow. I want the TP to hang over the back of the body 1.5-2" and screw into the bottom. The lip will match the contour of the body. I want the strings to go through the TP via metal ferrules. The body of the TP needs to be large enough to house a 3.5"x2.5" inlay. I'd like the outside edge to be bound to match the body. I would like, but it is not necessary to have, some king of keyholes for the top wood to show through. The TP will be made from poplar and painted black. So.... experience, input, or suggestions?
