Found this spatula I think I could bend into a tail piece to run the strings threw. Kinda anchor the strings and be used as a tail piece. Has anyone done this or think it would workout for just a 3 string

Of course I already have a bridge "eyebolt".
Yep it's been done. I use curled forks for mine. It'll work, go ahead.
Would I use a torch or heat gun to bend it and also I would need to cut off the handle right?
Attachments:
Chreap solder on the handle, should be able to just force it right off. Put it in a vise, and just lightly hammer it over, no heat needed.
Your probably right Ron. They are only 1$ new.
Looks like you might be able to bend it in a padded vise. A torch would probably alter the finish. I'd cut the handle off.
True!

Got this pie server from the local Goodwill store.

nice, thanks for sharing- I have had thoughts of forks and such, never had done yet.

lookin good ,I would like to see it when its finished. Im still learning the ropes. What did you cut the spoon with "if you don't mind me asking?"

I used a angle grinder with a cutoff wheel. Finished it awhile back. I use it as a lap steel. It has a piezo under the plate, one HB with coil tap wired to a 3-way switch. 500k volume for HB and 1meg volume for the piezo.

Oh nice! "I don't own a angel grinder ,but thinking of cutting the spatula to size "if all goes as planned" ,which for me it usually dont ,but I want to do a six string build using a Bolton neck myself anyways looks Unique "Looks great Paul" Thanks for the advice & photo!
