About This Listing

This is a neat piece of kit. It's an adapter bracket that enables you to swap out the trapeze tailpiece on your Rickenbacker for an R or harp tailpiece. Why do you need this bracket? Because the R tailpiece bracket is not interchangeable with the stock trapeze bracket. If you want to make that switch, you have to drill 2 new holes in your guitar. That's not good.

The upgrade is as easy as can be with this bracket: take off the trapeze bracket and screw this one in. With the screws that we give you, naturally.

And remember: this is for the bracket only; no tailpiece (neither harp nor R) is included.  If you need a harp tailpiece (6-string, 12-string, left-handed, etc.), we've got those too (but no R tailpieces; sorry). We've also got complete conversion kits which include both the bracket and the tailpiece. It doesn't get any easier than that.
