Casino Long Trapeze tailpiece

Strong Heavy

Recommended Posts

The absolute best trapeze is the ABM 1504.  It’s made in Germany of nickel plated bell brass, is expensive as all get-out, and, in my experience ( I put them on my Casino and my Loar) it actually improves the string definition on the bass strings. 

Everything else is Asian pot metal. So just order the usual one from Stew Mac or Ali Baba or wherever.  I went with ABM because I’m obsessive compulsive and wanted the correct nuts, not the huge long ones that most trapezes have these days. 

In the photo you see a vintage 125 with the original Gibson tailpiece, and the ABMs on the other two  Note that the ABM is longer than the Gibson
