That's what the tailpiece on my Epi LP looks like. It's literally only holding on by the last 4-5 threads.

Tried top-wrapping it, and lowering the action, but even then the strings don't come anywhere to clearing the bridge.
got any pics? that seems... very odd. I don't think i've heard of anyone not clearing when top wrapping.

Not of it top-wrapped. No.

It's an Epi, so I think the fact that the hardware isn't flush-mounted (tops of the bridge/taipliece furrels sit above the body) might have something to do with it?
