Gibson 52' Les Paul Tailpiece
This is new Gibson 52' Les Paul* Tailpiece/Bridge/Post and Wheel Set....hard to find...Nickel plated
The bridge on this Les Paul is a tribute to Les. Gibson engineers designed it after the original Les Paul patent of 1952. The story goes that Les and Gibson had a difference of opinion on the string wrap direction. Gibson wanted it to wrap underneath and Les wanted to be able to palm mute the strings so he needed it to wrap over the top of the bar. When Gibson’s didn’t see it his way, Les designed and patented one himself in 1952. So here it is, Les, just for you …
The brass trapeze tailpiece on the Les Paul Tribute 1952 guitar is also closely modeled after the hardware on the original model.
