I've had my AFJ81 about 4 years and play it regularly in a jazz band. Last evening at rehearsal the metal on the tail piece fractured causing the tail piece to break loose. Fortunately, neither I nor the guitar were injured or damaged, however, the guitar is unusable until a replacement tail piece can be acquired and installed. The problem appears to be the result of a fault in the metal used to make the tail piece. Any suggestions as to how to a approach the problem of securing a replacement tail piece, preferably one made from stronger metal?

Hello KVan,

this definitely seems like an odd issue. I'll be sending you a PM for more details to try and get this resolved for you.

Hi Bill,

my Ibanez AFJ91 JLF12 01 P/N S14041261 has got exactly the same issue (metal defect or bad design causing cracks on the tailpiece).
As I'm living in France I would like to know if it's possible to get a free replacement part ?

Kind Regards,
