  1. ES-125 Tailpiece

    03 January 2017 - 07:53 PM

    Hey everyone
    I have a 1956 ES-125 that has been in the family for over 30years.
    The tail piece has broken - so I ordered the standard replacement.

    https://www.amazon.c...E/dp/B0006ZP9L4

    The top 2 holes between the original and the replacement match. The replacement doesn't have the hole for the strap button, instead there is a 3rd hole for a screw. Which looks like it would go into the hole for the strap button. We lost the strap button decades ago, and I don't plan to replace it.

    So my questions are
    1. Can I just use the top two holes to attach the tailpiece to the body ? And not worry about the bottom screw. OR

    2. Should I insert a dowel into the strap button hole for the 3rd screw ?

    What would be the best way to replace the tailpiece, since I can't find an exact replacement.
    I tried to include pictures...
    THANKS ! Mark
