Hy everyone,

a while ago I woke up to find my beloved 1991 360/12's strings dangling all over the place, just like some crazed octopus' tentacles.
The R tailpiece was lying lifeless nearby there, its bottom separated from the upper part.
Never having witnessed anything like that, after some online researching, I've found out about this seemingly not-that-uncommon issue.
I'm currently living in Italy, the official Italian RIC dealer has been out of business for the last couple of years, so I've sent an email to service@rickenbacker.com but, understandably, haven't received an answer as of yet.

Word of mouth pointed me to a website selling trapeze tailpieces as well as conversion kits, but those don't do it for me, I love(d) my R tailpiece and would like an original one to return on my guitar as soon as possible.

Looking for help, please :|
Thanks so much!

Have you tried searching on Reverb.com? You could possibly to find one from 1991 at that.

Gather up the pieces and see if RIC will sell you a new one turning in the old parts.
