Because great guitars deserve this.

 

 

We are proud to offer three different versions of vibrato arms for the Kauffman tailpiece.

Our short arms are sized and bent just like the arms that shipped with with the short-scale Capri's of the late 50s and the 325c58.  Like the originals, these arms are chrome-plated steel with a larger, chrome-plate knob. We offer the short arm in two styles: the early, single-bend version, and the later, two-bend version (as is also seen on the 325c58).

Our long arms are sized and bent just like the arms that shipped with with the Capri's of the late 50s; they differ slightly from the arms on the smaller 3/4-size guitars (e.g. the 325).  Like the originals, these arms are chrome-plated steel with a machined aluminum knob.

If you're looking for the end hook to attach your tailpiece to the guitar, please look at the several styles the we offer here.

Brand new: If you've got an old (and we mean old) Spanish guitar or lap steel from the 30's or 40's that was equipped with a Kauffman Vib-rola, we've now got a small number of replacement arms.  These are made like the originals, with nickel-plating and a looped end.  Better still, they're available in a number of lengths, to fit any kind of instrument.

Et finalement, someone had to start selling those small clamp screws which hold the arm in place.  That someone is us.  Short and knurly -- just the way you like them.

For looks, quality, and accuracy: there is simply no other choice for your Rickenbacker.
