Thread: ES-335 12String Stop Bar advice

  1. #21
    next problem now that I plan to plug the post holes for the Stop Tail piece and move to a trapeze.
    The earth wire was to be attached to the post of the stop tail. Is the bridge post a viable alternative or do I need to do something mystical to attach to the trapeze somehow ?

    Would appreciate any thoughts.

    Cheers

    Yep bridge will do the trick. You should be able to very carefully drill a hole from the bridge post hole into the main body cavity with a thin, longish bit. Doesn't matter if it's a bit of an angle.

    The sonic approach is tried and true. You can also run the were to a metal trapeze. It's not mystical. You drill a hole under where the base of the trapeze is screwed to the body with a long bit just as as you would do for the post.
