A nice (if not wholly accurate) reproduction of the 1910's design.
A heavy cast tailpiece with a saddle that attaches to the banjo with a single nut & bolt through the angle at the bottom. The cover plate is attached to the saddle with a hinge. There are 5 string studs on the back of the cover plate. There is a screw in the back of he cover plate to adjust the angle of the cover plate to the saddle and a further 2 screws in the back of the saddle to adjust the angle of the saddle to the tension ring.
A well-known and nice quality item used for many restoration jobs as well as for new build items. The original Kerschner design was a "4-string only" tailpiece and the cover plate was a bit shorter than the current reproduction type. This improves the function of the tailpiece on 5-string banjos but makes it a little less than ideal for high-grade restoration jobs.
Dimensions: Length (front to back): 70mm, Width (at widest point) 38mm: Depth (from top of tension ring) 31mm
Supplied with a 40mm x M4 fixing nut + bolt
