I have been fortunate enough to buy a used 325C58 in MG. I restrung it with 12-52 gauge strings (previous owner had 10-46 gauge). It stays in tune much better, but the Vibrola tremolo is troublesome. Does anyone know if the Rickenbacker trapeze tailpiece will fit on the hooks that the Vibrola trem uses? I'd just as soon replace it. Thank you.

For anyone interested, the Rickenbacker trapeze tailpiece DOES fit on the Kauffman bracket. Not only does it make the guitar easier to tune, but it stays in tune much better. As an added bonus, there is an improvement in both tone and sustain. Thanks again.
