We have a great replacement banjo tailpiece for the old Gibson Style Clamshell style used on lots of mastertone style banjos and reprodcutions. This style was not only used on Gibson Banjos for many years but many of the lower priced import banjos made over the years too. This is a very high quality one at a good price and is high enough quality to put on an original Gibson and likley much better quality than on most reproductions. Ross Nickerson
