Tailpiece Options

The Halon 1060 bridge comes as standard on the Trailbreaker Mark-I, but you can choose the tailpiece. The Descendant Vibrato is an extra which applies an additional fee onto your order. Our Guitar Gallery team will provide further details on this if you enquire.

Descendant Vibrato — Designed by Swope Guitars in the USA, this innovative tremolo lets you set the depth of the string plate below the plane of the body in order to get optimal downward pressure on the saddles without disturbing the string path from the bridge to the tailpiece. You can also adjust the arm tension!

Oopegg Hardtail Plate — Maintains the elegant look of a classic '60s vibrato unit; sporting a cool etched Oopegg logo!

Who are Oopegg Guitars?

Oopegg is a premier Japanese electric guitar company that has turned plenty of heads in its short history. Established in May 2019, the brand debuted at the following year’s NAMM Show to showcase its flagship Trailbreaker Mark-I model — a quirky, “Neo-Bizarre” guitar that captures the aesthetic of vintage ‘60s American and Japanese-made electrics, yet comes refined with plenty of modern appointments and ergonomic construction tweaks to suit today’s generation.

Where are Oopegg Guitars made?

Oopegg’s ‘Supreme Collection’ instruments, the models that we stock, are designed in Tokyo and hand-made at their OEM Guitar Workshop in Nagano, Japan — a sacred area synonymous with high-end guitar manufacturing.

Oopegg Guitars Workshop

Two highly-trained luthiers, Shinichi “Sunny” Kuroiwa and Shun Yanagisawa, are responsible for crafting Oopegg’s Supreme Collection instruments at the aforementioned workshop. The company’s master builder, Tatsuhiro "T2" Itasaka, is responsible for hand-making Oopegg’s show models and prototypes — but still plays an active role in the production of the Supreme Collection by selecting timbers and supervising the workshop. He also carefully inspects and sets up every single custom creation before shipping!
