De BRUG Gitaren Noordeinde 17 LEIDEN 06 38926570
This exquisite piece of engineering replaces the headstock AND the tuners on a guitar, making the use of a headless bridge or tremolo redundant. The six tuning wheels are easily accessible with smooth and precise operation. Since the ball end goes into the headpiece, the bare string end needs to be locked into the bridge/tailpiece. So either a Floyd type tremolo or a locking tailpiece is necessary. I use the non-fine-tuning Floyd Rose trem a lot, as there’s no need for the fine tuners and it looks more modest than the regular FR. A tune-o-matic tailpiece with locking capability is available if ordered together with the headpiece. Price is €60 (chrome/nickel/black) or €70 (gold). Although the headpiece could be installed on a ‘decapitated’ old neck, its main purpose is to fit a neck that is specifically made for it, and instructions with dimensions will be supplied. The headpiece can be ordered by sending a mail to info@debruggitaren.nl. The price is €150, excluding VAT and shipping cost. You will receive a PayPal invoice with the exact price. Please state if you prefer it sent with or without tracking.
