Description

This Hosco Compensated Wraparound Tailpiece is in the vintage lightning bar style found on Gibson Melody Makers, SG Specials and SG Juniors in the '60s. The staggered compensation pattern improves the intonation of the strings over the plain non-compensated tailpiece (please note these are compensated for a vintage style wound G string) and in addition there are allen/hex screws behind the bridge posts that can be adjusted to move the whole bridge backwards and forwards and also slant it to add more intonation room to heavy bass strings. The chrome bridge is supplied with nickel plated 8 mm metric bridge posts and body anchors/bushings and fits the standard 82 mm (3 1/4") post spacing used for wraparound tailpieces. To install on guitars with imperial threaded bridge posts (Gibson USA guitars) either use your original bridge posts or we sell Gibson style posts separately.
