Stoptail Bridge

A Stoptail bridge is a combination of bridge and Stop tailpiece mounted directly to the body of solid body guitar. A Stop tailpiece is a separate bar, mounted on the body behind a movable or fixed bridge that holds the strings. The advantage of a Stoptail bridge is greater tuning stability than a tremolo bar and takes advantage of the resonance of the body of the guitar provided by direct transmission of string vibration. Guitarists and guitar-makers alike believe that a Stoptail Bridge creates a richer tone and better sustain.
