Bone-On-Bone: Interchangeable Trapeze Tailpiece [Part 3]

Leo finally spit out the final piece of our Interchangeable Trapeze Tailpiece! He’s been gnawing away for days on this one. Nice work Leo!

Super excited about how this turned out! I think it will add a great nuance to the wood bodied resonator project. With this part done we are even closer to set-up time.

Tail Part 3aThe trapeze is constructed so that the “block” can be swapped out easily with other materials. Once the guitar is set up we’ll start experimenting with different woods and metals. For now I’m pretty stoked to hear how the “Bone-On-Bone” configuration can sing the blues! (Bone Tailpiece Block, Bridge Insert and Nut)

Check out Parts 1 & 2 of this project piece to see it come together or Leo’s previous work on the Bone Nut.
