About This Listing

The Rickenbacker Accent vibrato seems to be a hot commodity these days.  You can't buy one for love or money.

Well, we don't want your love, but we will take your money.  Because we've now got a complete replacement for the Accent tailpiece.

Our vibrato is designed to vintage specs (and is interchangeable with either new or old units), but engineered to be stronger than the originals:
- Our comb uses a solid steel pivot instead of the weaker brass pivot on the old pieces. Then, we micro-weld it into place. It's not breaking, it's not popping out.
- Our springs are also made to vintage specs: they're flatter than the current springs, giving you a better break angle across the bridge saddles. And again, they've been re-engineered to be stronger than the originals.
- Our arms are also like the old ones: longer, and with a more rounded tip. And -- again -- they're stronger: we use a steel rather than brass ring.

And don't forget: we also offer a full range of replacement parts for the Accent vibrato: tailpiece, spring, comb, arm, and screw.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are installing the vibrato on a guitar fitted with an R or trapeze tailpiece, you will want to substitute our adapter tailpiece for the standard tailpiece.  It's a free substitution, but you must let us know.  Not sure which tailpiece you need? If the distance from the top of the guitar body to the center of the strap bolt hole is greater than 9/16", you want the standard tailpiece.  If it's 9/16" or less, you want the adapter.

International shipping for this part is via USPS Priority Mail (uninsured and without tracking). If you want a different service, please request it before placing your order.
