Gibson TP-6 Tailpiece

George9974, 28.01.2015
Brings violin-style fine-tuning to your Gibson/Epiphone LP, 335 or SG. May also fit other guitars with a similar stop bar. Easy to adjust whilst playing, allows accurate pitch, looks great!

Widely useful accessories

capmaster, 05.06.2012
Saddle jammed strings spoil the mood of the pitch and that of the musician. The Gibson TP-6 ??is then a mover in the double sense. The best for the stability of the voice is usually slight tuning and subsequent correction.

By the way, you get the advantage that the strings do not have to be pulled through, but simply the bales are to be attached. In the meantime, I use such a part on all Gibsons, which originally had a chrome-plated, fixed stopbar tailpiece.

If you replace an aluminum tailpiece, the response of the instrument increases greatly so that the strings have to be increased. Snarling otherwise leads to reduced sustain beyond the noises. (This can of course also be used differently by replacing an existing tailpiece made of zinc die-cast (ZAMAK) or bell brass with one of aluminum to achieve fast settling and long decay at low strings - see code 266536.)

It would be interesting to offer the TP-6 ??optionally with cast aluminum body, which I place here as a product idea in the space.

My doubts that the gripbrettradius, which is structurally missing in contrast to the fixed stopbar, could have a conspicuous effect on the sound, did not confirm. Through the selection of the used range of the tuning screws one can achieve a certain approximation over the inclination and distance of the respective single string holder, which also depends on the distance to the bridge as with the fixed tailpiece.

A very short distance between the string holder and the bridge can lead, depending on the playing technique and the strings, that the dampening hand edge comes in contact with the strings. This is especially the case with the Gibson S-Gs of the 1970s with the otherwise quite advantageous wide Schaller-Tune-o-matic.

The six strings are not protected against touching the guitar cover. If the string is changed regularly, a cloth can be placed between them. Rupture of a string can, however, cause a nasty impact on the varnish, even if a damage is not in the front view area even after re-fitting to the fixed tailpiece.

Particularly for guitars with a vaulted ceiling and at the same time very low mounting of the TP-6, it is important to ensure that the relevant string holder is not caulked with the varnish surface.
