Don, can you help with a Takamine Bridge

Postby Winston » Sun May 02, 2010 10:12 am

I bought this Takamine 12 string a couple of months ago and I love it. The action seemed a bit high and it was making a little bit of a buzzing noise at the bridge. I got a screwdriver and went to tighten one of the screws on the adjustable bridge and the screw just kept turning. I knew something was wrong so I took the bridge off and this is what I found:

Does anyone have any idea where I might get one of these screws or something that would work in it's place?

I guess you had no luck contacting Takamine?

Basically they told me that they don't make that type of bridge anymore and I could buy and entire new bridge. Not just a saddle, mind you. They say that the entire bridge has to be replaced and they don't know of any saddle that will fit the slot that holds the adjustable bridge.

That's ridiculous.
