Prestige 250 Stop Tailpiece - Alternatives? Empty Prestige 250 Stop Tailpiece - Alternatives?

Post by ntmh72 Thu Jun 24, 2021 6:54 am

Hi. Need some help please. My wife bought me a Prestige 250 for my 18th birthday, 30 years ago now. I can't really play but the guitar it is very precious to me. Unfortunately, a recent incident saw the tailpiece get broken. I didn't realise how catastrophic that actually was in terms of this particular guitar!!

So I joined the group to ask the question....I know it's been asked a lot in the past. As replacements are simply not available to buy anywhere due to it's non-standard sizing, the question I have is, what are the alternatives?

I've seen comments such as "put a Bigsby on it", "put a trapeze on it" etc, but has anyone actually ever done this? 

I spoke to a local shop and he said the issue will always be the string spacing, even if I was to buy a standard tailpiece and get the original holes plugged. Does anyone happen to know what the string spacing is on them?

I am trying to get the part modelled in 3D and then get some quotes on getting one machined. However, if anyone does happen to have one lying around that they would sell then please let me know.

I would like to get the guitar 'playable' again and on display in my house. Really appreciate any help or advice. 

Many thanks

Idea
if you have the old tailpiece you could take it to a metal fabricator and have them make a new one.

Scorpious, as I told you on your other post, you are way off topic here!

Please refrain from multi-posting on the same issue/question. It makes it difficult to follow a conversation and it confuses everyone. One post is enough and please make sure you start a New Topic in the correct Forum so it doesn't get buried in another members' post.

Thanks
