Has anyone ever seen a tailpiece like this one? Would it be cow horn or bone? Thank you.

It's more likely to be whale tooth. Sure is pretty.

Just stumbled across this, since I haven't been around in a while. It's made from a cow's leg bone. Seen a few. BTW, IMHO, kcsing1 is one of the better voices in Nashville.
