The Faber Wrap-Lock Tailpiece Posts are a set of steel locking posts that can be used to keep wraparound tailpiece bridges level and ensures maximum sound transmission to the guitar body. Simply set the bridge height for the desired action and then use the included tool to tighten the locking nut from below against the bridge. 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).

Better fit than stock posts and more chime
Fitted these to an Epiphone "Inspired By" Les Paul Special, which was a very nice guitar, but I didn't like the bridge lean on the stock bridge posts, or the amount of slop the posts had in the bushings.
The Fabers fit much more precisely and make for a very solid feeling bridge assembly. Installation was slightly fiddly but very manageable.
I would say a noticeable change in tone: the stock posts were warmer and woollier - a very likable sound, but I was never able to turn the tone down past 10 - whereas the Fabers add a noticeable bell-like chime to the note, giving me a whole range of usable musical sounds across the range of the tonepots.
If you like your guitar dark these might not be right for you, but just in terms of build quality they feel like a serious upgrade, and I'm happy with the result soundwise too.

Great for wraparound bridge
Used in conjunction Faber bridge to stabilise tuning and intonation on my lp jnr Johnny Thunders replica. They work Nuffield said.
