  1. I've seriously been considering replacing the trapeze stye tailpiece with a stop tailpiece on my 1972 ES-335. I measured the block of wood running through the middle of the guitar and it measures 4.0" wide. The dimension from the outside of each threaded insert is 3.765". That leaves only 0.1175" of wood at the outside of the threaded insert. And that assumes that the block of wood through the middle of the guitar is dead even centered. I'm wondering if this is really enough wood, or would I be better of gluing on some additional wood slabs on the the sides of the block of wood near the holes for the threaded inserts? Does anyone know if the ES-335's, with stop bar tailpieces, used a center block of wood wider than 4.0"? Scott Novak
