    Hi there!

    First time post, apologies if I make any huge faux pas. I've been trying to source a Cadillac Tailpiece for my White Falcon (as the title may suggest!) to replace the Bigsby that came as stock with it. I wondered if anyone on here could point me in the right direction? Having a little trouble locating one here in the UK.

    Apologies if this is a dumb request or in the wrong place - thanks for anyone able to help!

    Welcome P B , Apart from searching the for sale threads on here and the usual flea bay scan, you could try Darren Riley online shop or UK based Frets store ( I think)
    They do come up once in a while here.

    Thank you all so much for your feedback and tips! :) Apologies for taking a while to reply. I'm currently scouring the places you've suggested and have made a few phone calls, hoping for them to get back with some news.

    This is the model I'm hoping to put it on... 47373374_10218805709519725_7571208709196480512_n.jpg

    I know - not sure if you realise but we've exchanged messages over several days and you said you'd let me know how much it would cost to post it to England. I can't get in a bidding war with myself unfortunately haha! If you don't want to sell it to my "inbox alter ego" no problem haha! Just let me know what you want for it otherwise and I will tell you if I can afford your asking price :)

    Well I looked into it and it would cost about $50.00 US to send it to you so with shipping would you be willing to go say 225 pounds?
