I have a Kentucky KM-855 in excellent shape except that the gold plating is wearing through on the tailpiece.  What's the best fix for this replace / replate?  And where can I find the parts or have the replating done?  Thanks

Contact Saga.  Or check with a Saga dealer.  You should only need the tailpiece cover. Right?



Maybe it is time to consider a cast tailpiece like and Allen.



Otherwise I'd let it go.  It shows that you play, gives you street cred, and probably exudes mucho mojo.

Thanks for the chuckle - "probably exudes mucho mojo"!

And yes I just need the cover although now I'm rethinking the idea of losing my street creed!

Thanks for the reply

IF YOU WATCH THE ANTIQUE SHOWS ON TV- ORIGINAL IS BETTER-NO MATTER HOW WORN-  PRICE WISE TOO.  SO KEEP THE ONE YOU HAVE NOW AND ENJOY
