“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Cast Mandolin Tailpieces

 
Our beautiful cast bronze Allen Monteleone-style tailpieces are offered in three finishes: unplated bronze, nickel plate, and gold plate. The polished, unplated bronze will develop a nice patina in time. Mounting screws are included. TPMAB800x800 TPMAN800x800 TPMAG800x800
  Allen Unplated Bronze     Allen Nickel Plate     Allen Gold Plate
We looked for years for a cast tailpiece at a price-point for a mid-range mandolin and we found one in the Ashton Bailey tailpieces. These are a single piece cast tailpiece and can be used to upgrade a two-piece tailpiece or for new construction. If upgrading, note that the mounting holes may not align with your existing tailpiece. See the drawing below. Mounting screws are included.   TPMABC005  TPMABG800x800
