    Is it a japanese guitar? What make? Some of the tailpieces they used had non-conventional mounts.

    Those holes look to far apart for the plaque and there woyld be holes for the vibrato. Looks like there was a different type of tailpiece that was screwd down with 4 screws.

    Yeah, that "Custom Made" plaque has two fasteners that go in the holes where the stock tailpiece studs were, like for when you add a Bigs to regular 335.

    My bet would be on an odd-ball 60's or early 70s' Japanese tailpiece.
