Does anyone know if anyone still makes or sells the Ottinger style or anything close in a 5 string finger tailpiece.

Arthur - you might try Dan Goodrich in Chico, CA.
He shows on Linked in as owner of tension lock tailpieces.

Arthur-  I have some leftovers from Woodhaven, in various stages of finish, when they made replicas of the Oettinger tailpieces for Fender.  They made the traditional Oettinger fingers with the pin and later a slotted version (less work). Additional pictures in my photo album.

rickardbanjos.com has a very similar Mike Rowe design. Pricey, though.

I have an original Oettinger tail piece I'd be willing to sell.
