78 RD Artist, replacement tailpiece


weg

Recommended Posts

Working on restoring a 78 RD Artist, but I need to find a replacement tailpiece, studs, and bushings.

 

I pulled the original bushings from the body, because I couldn't find studs that fit. It's not the standard 5/16-24 or M8 x 1.25. The original bushings are also about .5" in diameter, while the replacements I've been able to find are closer to 7/8". I'd rather not have to put a dowel in there and re-drill for the smaller bushings.

 

Any solutions?

I happen to have an original Shaller TP-6 fine tuning tailpiece with bushings in great condition (correct for 78 RD Artist) in gold. Originally from a 1980 Les Paul Artist (theft recovery....body and neck thrashed, hardware still good). E-mail me, let's wheel and deal. thunderpigg@hotmail.com I trade gear and parts all the time. Tons of guitar and bass parts and pieces. Ask me...I just may have what you need.
