    I've scoured the internet, and although there are many 7 string archtop guitars with trapeze tailpieces out there, I cannot find a replacement trapeze tailpiece for a 7 string guitar anywhere! Here's a 6 string example.

    Anyone know where I can find this for a 7? I should note, I have been able to find some extremely expensive carved ebony 7 string trapezes, but I'm not looking to spend $200 on a tailpiece.

    Thanks.

    Perhaps get a new retainer(?) plate made with 7 holes and just bend the prongs a little wider? doesnt look too complicated :)

    Edit:- Assuming you have one for a 6 string or can just buy one..
