Mustang Hardtail Plate (Brushed/Distressed Only)
On a recent plate order I used the "deburring" option that my supplier offers on some plates, thinking this would make them easier to polish. While it left the plates smooth, it also left a brushed finish deep into the stainless steel. It's basically impossible to polish out with the tools I have, so I'm offering these plates at a discount in order to get them out of my inventory.
This plate is great for those of you that don't use the vibrato on your Mustang. The strings anchor into "keyhole" notches, and the slightly lower string placement should offer a bit more sustain.
The notches are all 1/16" wide, so they'll fit up to .062" gauge strings.
The holes are all countersunk, so that flat head or oval head mounting screws can be used.
Made from 14 gauge (2mm/0.075") stainless steel.
Works on both right handed and left handed guitars. Available in a brushed or distressed finish only..
Note: You will have to modify your instrument in order to get the string balls some room to anchor under the plate. This can be done with some chisels, a router, and/or a drill. If done correctly you can still go back to a vibrato in the future if you ever decide to.
