I recently asked for people to look at a little Oettinger Tailpiece web site I had created. I was after constructive criticism. This was both given freely and gratefully received. So thanks to all you guys, you know who you are. It was really appreciated.

I am setting up a gallery page that is to show pictures of mounted tailpieces owned by Oettinger fans around the world.

So, to that end, if you have an Oettinger tailpiece on one of your banjos, please could you send me a picture of it and maybe some descriptive text. I hope that's not being too cheeky! This is the Oettinger Tailpiece Gallery as you can see it needs more examples.

For anyone who takes the time and effort to do this for me, I will give a £10 Discount and a spare thumbscrew on a tailpiece purchase at any point in the future. That is, the discount has no end date.

Hi, that's absolutely what I am looking for. It's gorgeous, it looks like and original in mint condition.

Can I use any pictures of your Oettinger, please? Do you have any further information on it?n

It was installed as an upgrade on a 1980's Ome, I don't know the history of Oettinger, I guess this one is "recent". Ome still have some for sale. Funny because I tested many configurations with this banjo (tpc, bridges, strings, heads, etc...) and finally I didn't find any improvement with this Oettinger, so I re-installed the original Ome tpc. I'm thinking to sell it some day. You can use any picture of course.

Thanks very much!

Well, if you are ever in the market for another Oettinger, you just qualified for the £10 discount and a spare thumbscrew.
