James Mandolin Tailpiece
We have these custom tailpieces made for us by Bill James at Axiom Inc. They feature a hinged cover with a concealed latch. To facilitate re-stringing, the cover flips up allowing easy access to string ends, then flips down to hold string ends in place leaving both hands free. Strings and cover are fully dampened against vibration. Available with either a silver or gold plated Florentine finish.

Custom Options include Left Handed, Headstock binding, Fingerboard binding, Wood binding on body, Custom Inlay and many more.
