Thread: Orrico tailpiece

  1. #1

    Question Orrico tailpiece

    Iíve been thinking about swapping out my tailpiece. Iíve seen several references here on Mandolin Cafe about Orrico tailpieces, and I think theyíre drop dead gorgeous. Iím striking out trying to find one. Anyone have any ideas where they can be purchased?
    Google is not helping.

    I maybe wrong, but it is highly doubtful.

    Google helped me; one here for $90.

    LATER: my apologies. The BarnBand referral site just linked me to an unreachable former listing at Elderly Instruments. The other sellers that listed Orrico tailpieces had them marked "not in stock/unavailable." You might well take George's advice above.

    I am not sure he is making them anymore, I occasionally run into his brother, tho not often anymore, if i see him I will ask him.

    I believe he's having trouble finding someone to cast the tailpieces for him.
