This guitar actually came with the TP-6 tailpiece. It's based on the Kahler fine tuning setup. This tailpiece is pretty common for some 80s Gibson's - in fact, I love it more than the standard Tune-O-Matic bridge system.

But, what I find strange about the pic's is this...
That guitar, had what is called a "tune-a-matic" bridge, with a "Stop tail piece", which threads the strings through the tail piece, on their way to the tuning pegs...this makes it impossible to remove the tail piece from the guitar and still have the strings attached to the pegs????
