The Quik Change III is a tailpiece used to retain the guitar strings on various hard-tail Ibanez models. It is designed by Ibanez and produced for Ibanez by Gotoh.

The Quik Change III is a screwed to the guitar top and retains the strings at the bridge end. Ball end strings can be quickly fed into the tailpiece and once attached to the tuning machine are held securely by the ball. The height of the mounting posts is adjustable.

The Quik Change III relies on a separate bridge which allows the string height and intonation to be adjusted. It is often used in conjunction with a Gibraltar III Tune-O-Matic style bridge.

The Quik Change III replaced the Quik Change II. The two are functionally similar but the new model has a slightly narrower shape.

Guitar models with a Quik Change III include various Artist series models and Artist derivatives as well as a handful of others. For a full list of models using the Quik Change III, see here.

The Ibanez part number for the Quik Change III is 2QC1CQ3C (chrome) or 2QC1CQ3G (gold).
