About This Listing

Check this out -- this is cool! From the worldwide leader in vintage Rickenbacker® restoration and after-market parts, we have got the neatest little adapter for those of you who want to install an Accent tailpiece on a guitar fitted with and drilled for an R or trapeze tailpiece.

You know the problem here: the strap bolt hole for an R or trapeze tailpiece is too close to the top edge of the guitar to comfortably swap in an Accent vibrato, as it puts the tailpiece quite a ways above the top of the guitar.  So, you're left with two choices: drill a new hole in your guitar, or have the tailpiece sit way off the face. We're offering you a third way: we've developed an adapter which lets you use that original hole. Maybe best of all, it pretty much covers the old holes from your original tailpiece -- something the stock bracket won't do when it's jacked up in the air.

Think about it: it will cost you a lot less than the hit you'll take from drilling a big ol' hole in your guitar. And the installation? It's a drop-in replacement.

And please read this: if you're trying to replace a missing or damaged part to make a complete vibrato, you may want our standard tailpiece instead (listed elsewhere on Reverb -- but they won't let us show a direct link). That one is a reproduction of the original, with the same strap bolt location.

PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for the adapter tailpiece only.  The rest of the vibrato is not included.
