new HB-35 owner
« on: April 02, 2012, 07:50:27 AM »
I got an HB-35 yesterday, natural finish with gold hardware and an odd tailpiece and bridge. the tailpiece has fine tuning knobs on it and the bridge is like no other hollowbody/semihollow bridge i've ever seen. i'm wondering if anyone can tell me what it is i have here besides an HB-35. the serial number is S97104718.

That's a Gibson TP-6 style fine-tuning tailpiece. Many people, (including myself,) have chosen to replace stock 335 tailpiece with these:

        ah so thats not the original tailpiece then?   good, i wont feel bad about putting a Gibson Stop-Bar on it then, and a tune-o-matic bridge.  thanks for the information.  i love the guitar except for those 2 parts, the just dont look right on this guitar.

I have a '77 walnut 'The Paul' that has a tailpiece like that. Original I believe.
