There are different styles and designs of multi-finger tailpieces. Ottinger is one name that was associated with them.  I've seen Concertones, but can't say if the tailpiece was Ottinger or something else.



Though the different ones are all similar in concept, Liberty's Bear Claw was a unique design.



I don't know if it's worth this much, either. big  Thought I'd throw a number out there and see if I get any takers.



These aren't being made any more, obviously. And I think few were made in the first place.  They've come up in conversation on the Hangout before.  I know there are people looking for them.

Here are the different types of these tailpieces, pretty neat, and quick string changing.

Thanks.  You can see from that assortment that mine is a Liberty Bear Claw.  Not that I had any question.

Collectors would maybe pay it, but tailpiece shoppers may spend equal dollars on something new - personal decisions make the world go around.

Thanks for your interest, but you're too late.  If you click on the link in my original message it will take you to the ad. Notice the big red word "SOLD"?
