I just bought some relic’d ones to replace my super-shiny ones, however annoyingly they don’t fit the holes.

Anybody have a couple of these?

You only need 2???

Hmmm, apologies if I’ve called them by the wrong name. The two bolt-like screws that the tailpiece slot into.

Still looking, anybody have an old spare pair? Happy to pay and/or at the very least cover postage, I'm after an old or non-shiny pair of these :thumbup:

Thanks guys. I’ve just ordered some and was gonna have a go at aging them, I don’t even know if what size the ones are in my LP but I’m assuming they’re just standard?

Thanks Bg, did you have some old ones lying around you can dull up a bit? No worries if not, I’ll have a go with the ones I have coming and if that fails I can send a pair up to you with a New World voucher for some beersies ;-)

Not sure either. Your call, I’ll take you up on your offer but only if they’re spares and you don’t need them.

Okay, so after ordering two pairs and neither fitted I decided to take the bulls by the horns and have a go myself.

Opted for some light aging which I achieved by soaking in a combination of ammonia/beer/urine (my own) :sick: Then out into the sunshine for a couple of days with a bit of rain to clean them off. Subtly done but does look a lot better now that the shine has gone from them...

Finished. Decided to take it a little further with the aging of the tailpiece studs and quite happy with where it's at now :)

FWIW if anyone's interested the bridge is a Gotoh aged ABR-1 and the tailpiece is an aged aluminium one by Q-Parts.
