Black Decorative Tailpiece for Mandolin and Cigar Box Guitars
This is a decorative black tailpiece, designed for use on a mandolin, but also perfect for a cigar box guitar! As shown in the photo above, beneath the removable faceplate cover are pegs meant for loop-end mandolin strings. But a CBG builder can easily drill three or four holes in the front curved lip of the tailpiece to accommodate ball-end strings instead! One possible modification for CBG usage is shown in the photo to the left. Please note that this tailpiece does not come pre-drilled, it is up to you to modify it to your needs!
The larger hole in the center of the screw plate is ideal for a jack or strap button! Three mounting screws are included with this product.
