    Hey Guys,

    I'm overhauling my Epi SG G400 from the early 2000's. It seems to have a somewhat uncommon (as far as I can tell) 80mm post to post spacing for the tailpiece. Can anyone recommend a good replacement?

    Thanks in advance

    Measure from left side of one stud to left side of other stud. More precise than trying to find stud centers. Mine are ±82mm.

    I doubt the tailpiece will change the tone in any way. You can find them on eBay. Just look for a metric TOM tailpiece or Epiphone tailpiece.

    Just double checked with a pair of calipers and I'm still getting 80mm.

    Tolerance is not really tight, 81.8 mm should fit OK.
