I own a Phil Leadbetter sig dobro. I am the second owner. The original owner had to replace the original (nickel) tailpiece and he did so with a chrome replacement part. I wanted to obtain an original replacement nickel tailpiece. I started by emailing the Vintage Restoration folks at Gibson. The rep, Danny Roberts, replied that Gibson didn't sell the part separately and steered me to StewMac. I did some checking at StewMac and Paul Beard's site and could not find a suitable quality nickel replacement tailpiece. I relayed this info to Danny and enquired about sending my dobro in to have the tailpiece replaced (stupid expensive I know, but that's where I started). I ended by saying, "I know it's a small thing, but I would hope Gibson would be supportive of my desire to play a genuine Gibson instrument in stock condition." So Danny emails me today and tells me that Gibson is sending me a replacement tailpiece gratis. Very cool and much appreciated. Thanks guys (and Danny in particular)!
