These Faber TPI-A Tailpiece Anchor/Bushings are in the vintage Gibson 59 style (with a wider diameter than most modern bushings) and are made from steel and provide a solid connection between tailpiece and guitar body. The bushings come in two different thread styles, the imperial version has the standard Gibson 5/16-24 imperial thread to accept the tailpiece posts used on Gibson USA guitars and PRS Core guitars and the metric version has 8 mm threads to accept the tailpiece posts used on 'import' guitars made in Japan and across Asia (Epiphone, PRS SE, ESP/LTD, Schecter etc).
If you are replacing an existing bushing please check the dimensions carefully as we also have the Faber TPI-B which has a 12 mm diameter (top lip style seen on Asia made guitars) and the Faber TPI-C which has a 11.2 mm diameter (non top lip style seen on Asia made guitars).
