Faber®“ Aluminum Tailpiece. Correct Vintage Style. It is an extremely lightweight, nickel-plated tailpiece, available in a glossy polished version or in “aged” …
In the 50s Gibson used to use Aluminum for their Les Paul tailpieces… They changed that practice to reduce costs and their guitars now sport zinc tailpieces. Today, zinc tailpieces are the “Standard hardware” on all Gibson models except Custom Shop guitars and are also standard on all Gibson-style Replica models. The Aluminum tailpieces weight 1/4 that of the zinc and produce a very different sound. They transfer vibrations differently, resulting in a woodier, more airy vintage tone – richer, rounder mids but with more upper harmonics as well. Unplugged, the guitar seems almost more “acoustic” and resonant. Plugged in, the notes are warmer and rounder with more harmonics vs. heavier fundamentals with the zinc.
Faber® Tone-Lock™ Locking Tailpiece Studs. This is the best and most innovative tailpiece locking system available today and the best sustain enhancing product you can buy for your stop tailpiece equipped guitar!
