Just wondering if any of you have a MIM sized Tailfeather you aren't using, and would like to sell?

Thank you much, Archie!

I should have been more specific. It is the Tailfeatherz for the MIM
2-1/6" string spacing that I am in search of.

Ok, I gotta ask (since Google wasn’t much help) - what’s a tailfeather?

If you search this forum Search Words: tailfeather, Search Dates: Any Date, all will be revealed.

Edited to add: The cliff notes version is that it is an elegant tremolo blocking device created by former FDP member Electron.

HeavyDuty - It's a block you screw into a Strat body to lock down the trem, thus converting it properly to a 'hardtail' (fixed bridge - no more vibrato.)

I don't know if you've found the Tailfeather or not, but there are other devices that will lock your trem. One is called the Tremol-No at www.tremol-no.com. The other is the Trem Stopper at www.fu-tone.com. Look for the Trem Stoppers category on the left side. Good luck.
