Gibson es390 tailpiece question


es390

Recommended Posts

So the tailpiece on my Gibson es390 is the long trapeze tailpiece just like its big brother the es330.

Well the tailpiece on its cousin Epiphone Casino Coupe is a short trapeze tailpiece which to me makes more sense... You´ll get the added string tension of course among other things.

The long tailpiece on my 390 makes for a very loose string tension which isn´t ideal for my use. I believe it also diminishes the sustain a bit... I think it is strange that Gibson chose this solution for that guitar.

I´m wondering if any of you guys know where to get a hold of a short trapeze tailpiece. Like the one they use for the casino coupe or similar.
