: Is an adjustable tailpiece a good investment? I have the opportunity to buy one at a local music store for 75 bucks. It is all steel I think. Is this a good idea?

The point of an adjustable tailpiece is to adjust the pitch of the portion of the string between the bridge and the tailpiece. It allows variability. Some people use this to eliminate wolf tones. It also affords precision in setting the pitch relationship to the played portion of the string. You'll find them on expensive orchestra basses where fine increments of performance are very important to the player.
