Description
The Nechville Inline Tailpiece is held in place against the Heli-Mount Frame solely by the pressure of the strings. The tailpiece can be adjusted by three screws that are used to increase the distance between the frame and the tailpiece. As can be seen in this photograph, and as the name implies, the Nechville Inline Tailpiece holds the strings the same width apart as they are on the bridge. Doing so is thought to increase and improve banjo tone. Nechville Musical Products Company is located in Bloomington, Minnesota and is owned and operated by Tom Nechville.
