The worst mandolin tailpiece ever?

By Kenneth Rainey. Filed under: MandoBlog, TweedBlog. Tags:

I’ve been using a new National RM-1 resonator mandolin for virtually all our gigs for over six months now, and I’m generally happy with it. I find the tone to be solid for both rhythm and lead playing, and the volume is unmatched in any mandolin I’ve ever tried. There is one major annoyance with the RM-1, though: the tailpiece.
