The Tailpiece of my J3 just broke with 0,13 strings
« on: January 10, 2017, 07:46:35 AM »
I have this guitar for two years, I bought it new. I live in Sorocaba, Brazil and need some help about where can I find a replacement tailpiece for my J3 guitar. Did anyone had the tailpiece of a washburn hollowbody guitar broken when a 0,13 string set was used? Maybe this piece is a little week for this kind of strings.

This is a chronic problem with some of the Ibanez Artcore jazz boxes.  I would recommend buying an aftermarket tailpiece from a well respected music supply vendor in your country.  In the US, I would recommend WD Music or Stew Mac.
