Ok how do you really tell the difference between the Price tailpieces that don’t have the Price name on them and the Goldtone copies?

If you really need to know, just scratch or grind a spot on the underside where it will never show. Imports are pot metal, Garys are brass

Real ones don’t bend or bow forward under string tension.

See the pictures. As delivered new, the Price has a hex head on the adjustment screw and a Gibson style nut on the attachment screw. Of course this hardware can be swapped out.

There are some authentic Price tailpieces that don’t have his name on them, I’m pretty sure.

Also the price tailpiece has a less rounded shape on the front of the top of the tailpiece ,this has always be the telltale sign

This is the tailpiece history direct from Gary's website. I've used a lot of them (as we did a barter years ago), including reshaping and engraving a significant number of them for my openbacks, and they are very well made.
