These Faber Tailpiece Studs/Posts are in the vintage correct '59 style and made from steel for strength and improved vibration transfer to the guitar body. The posts come in two different thread styles, the imperial version has the standard Gibson 5/16-24 imperial thread used on Gibson USA guitars, the metric version has 8 mm threads used on 'import' guitars made in Japan and across Asia (Epiphone, ESP/LTD, Schecter etc).

compliments the new tailpiece but...
Sire H7. I was fitting the tailpiece so thought it would be as well to fit the matching posts. Not sure if I needed to really. They are exactly the same weight as the originals. a little longer.
downside was that they were not a good fit ion the threads - the plating must have added a mew microns to the threads and although one post went on fairly easily the other was a struggle. Fortunately I have a tap and die kit and I was able to go over the threads with a die to re-cut the threads the make it fit. No issues after that.
Not sure I would bother next time - the standard posts would have done I suspect.
It was all part of a general upgrading of the guitar which s now vastly improved.
Glued To Music provided prompt delivery though and trouble free transaction.

Replaced the bridge and stud inserts on my Les Paul with Faber. The difference was unbelievable, so I decided to change the tail piece and studs also !
Fantastic upgrade for any Les Paul !
