Our tailpieces are available two versions; stamped and machined. The stamped
version features a sliding cover plate and is a replica of those used on the
original F5, A5, F4, and H5 mandolins. For a solid tailpiece, we chose the Bill
James design which features a CNC-machined base and hinged cover that snaps shut
into two rattle preventers. These come standard with a wriggle-work engraved
border or they can be engraved with your name in one of four engraving styles.
