I have never had a Schaller product that I was not happy with. They make high quality products that aren't that expensive. This tailpiece is no exception. The plating, although not perfect, is of a very high standard that is unrivaled in this price range. It is very well polished and appears to be made to pretty strict tolerances. As far as I know, this is a cast brass tailpiece so it is not as light as the more expensive aluminum alternatives. The only tailpieces better than this are the ones machined from solid bell brass. They're much more durable and are said to produce more harmonic overtones and increase sustain. The problem is, they cost nearly twice as much as this one...
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
A heavy tailpiece but not for Asians
Chris M., 27.02.2012
Beautiful, heavy but also rounder tailpiece than the original Epiphone. The impact bolts are useless, however, since the holes of the original Asia bolts are larger. Thus, the tailpiece can only be used with the already installed bolts and screws. However, since the Schaller Stoptail appears more brilliant and high-quality than the original bolts and sleeves it is optically rather unpleasant.
So if you have small holes, the part is really top, but over 30EUR only for the tail without the higher-quality mounting parts can be too much.
Is not a fault of Schaller, but only the construction of the Asia ES models owed. The tailpiece would fit however with the Epi!
