Started this discussion. Last reply by Taffy Evans on Sunday. 12 Replies

Hi all!Have any of you built a cbg with a violin-style tailpiece, one that is fixed by a cord to a tailpin and essentially floats rather than being hard to the body? How did it work out? I'm building…Continue

Hi all!I'm in the planning stages of a baritone build, probably a fretless around 28", and I will probably use a PAF for the main pup, but might put a piezo in, too. So, my question is, has anyone…Continue

Apart from a Makita drill, a Dremel and a couple of chainsaws, everything I build is done with hand tools, mostly a few different saws and a Ferrier rasp. This isn't by choice, fwiw, I just don't…Continue

Back of the box or the lid?

I just picked up a Perdomo box from CB Gitty and it is absolutely gorgeous! Dark stain, deep, resonant size and a contoured, ornate lid. But, that brings me to my question: As much as I like the…Continue

"Hi Justin, shown here is a tailpiece I have just finished making for a customer's guitar and fitting it to the guitar has caused me to try many different fitting methods. These wooden tailpieces are often found on upmarket custom arch-top…"

"A trapeze style tailpiece for an arch top guitar is screwed to the body, but a violin style tailpiece is secured with a cord around a peg & held in place by the pull of string tension? These kind of tailpiece’s aren’t used on flat…"

"I've seen those, but never had a chance to try them out. I keep toying with the idea of building a cigar box cello, but I would probably just use standard tuners on it."

"I think it is, though I'm not sure if a trapeze tail is hooked by string/cable or screwed to the body. I need to look at some. Thanks for the reply!"

Carl Floyd replied to Justin Stanchfield's discussion Anyone used a violin-style tailpiece on a CBG?
"Sure, why not. Will likely have to trim it to get a length that will work, as Taff mentioned. Is the trapeze tailpiece found on many archtop guitars not a variation on a theme (violin tailpiece)?"

"Thanks for the info. That's the kind of thing I was wondering. To be honest, I've never really understood why bowed instruments use that style of tailpiece. Sometimes I think the whole string section just likes being stuck in the 1600s.…"

Anyone used a violin-style tailpiece on a CBG?

Hi all!Have any of you built a cbg with a violin-style tailpiece, one that is fixed by a cord to a tailpin and essentially floats rather than being hard to the body? How did it work out? I'm building a couple of baritone scale guitars and thought such a tailpiece might make it easier to find strings long enough.FWIW, I've built a lyre with this style tailpiece and swapped out the tails on my viola before, but I've never tried one on a guitar.All thioughts appreciated.See More
