CP: 78 RD Artist, replacement tailpiece


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?


Sorry for the cross post, missed the vintage subforum first go round.
