On the Michael Glass Bass I am trying out the tailpiece is attached to a separate wooden knob instead of around the endpin. See picture. I wonder why that is? I tried finding the answer online and on TBDB but so far found very little. So any ideas on this? Anything more than just that it looks kind of neat? It also made me wonder how the endpin plug is fitted. Normally it is taper fitted of course and even when loose it is kept in place by the wire. In this case there is no wire... I know a plain taper fit on flywheels etc. (metal to metal) can be very strong but does the same apply to a wood-wood taper fit?
