The CWT tailpiece is CNC machined from high-strength aircraft-grade 7075 aluminum bar stock. It is then is hand polished and finished with a nickel plating. Machining is a more expensive manufacturing process than the diecast molding process that is typically used to make tailpieces, however it yields a much higher quality part which is why this process was chosen. The CWT bridge is made to the same overall dimensions of the original Gibson stock tailpiece so it is fully compatible with the stock studs. On these models it is necessary to replace the studs with the type that have a larger gap.
These studs are available from MojoAxe. The CWT tailpiece is compatible with all wraparound-bridge Gibson guitars which have mounting studs offset at an angle. Guitars which have the studs positioned even to each other (1960's style) will require a lightning bolt style compensated tailpiece (see comparison photo). If there is any question as to which bridge is correct for your guitar, please feel free to contact me. This listing is for the CWT-A aged version of the CWT bridge.
The aging consists of tarnishing of the nickel finish. If you prefer the look of a highly polished un-aged bridge, please see my other listing for the MojoAxe CWT-UA. MojoAxe products are crafted in the USA.
