Rob, Thank you for the friendship, the tail piece is just a 2" aluminum angle iron that the upper 1.5"/1.75" is cut off...I then drill holes for the strings to go through at the 90 degree bent. and use a bolt with the head cut off for the bridge/saddle. it's works fine but I am sure it is not the best way to do it. I see so many creative people here on CBN that have much better ways of doing things. But this has worked for me for now, but I hope to try a different way of doing it soon.
Hey Rob, I don't mind the questions. If I can help in any way, just ask. I am not an expert, just working on my 2nd build. If I can't help you, I will try to find someone that can help you. Elko, never heard of it. It must be up in North Ga.
