Finally, one that works
There don't seem to be many 6-string tailpieces out there, and I think at this point I may have tried all of them. Every other model I've tried has had some sort of problem -- couldn't contact the rim properly; pulled the bridge out of alignment; bent or broke after anywhere from a few months to a year.I'd held off on trying the Terminator because I wasn't really a fan of the visual appearance -- looks more like a stylized Klingon weapon, than a banjo tailpiece.When my previous tailpiece failed -- after less than a year -- I figured, what the heck, if it works, I don't really care if it's ugly.Well, it works.I've had the Terminator on my six-string for three months. When I put it on, I measured the gap between the front edge of the tailpiece and the banjo head with a micrometer. When tailpieces start to bend, it usually becomes noticeable around three months; when I checked the Terminator at three months it hadn't moved even a thousandth of an inch -- it's still rock-solid. Finally, a tailpiece that seems like it might last a while!As someone who's been forced to become a connoisseur of 6-string tailpieces, I highly recommend this one. Unless you're prepared to drop $100 on a Deering, you probably won't find a better one out there.And you'll get use to the looks.I did, to the extent that I also bought the 5-string model for one of my bluegrass banjos. :)
