    I think I worded that correctly.

    A few weeks ago a friend was borrowing my guitar and busted a string. When the string broke the saddle fell out and he didn't realise it was gone. No bigee.... where might one go to find one replacement saddle? It is for a Gotoh bridge. Thanks!

    Is it the Nashville style bridge or the ABR-1 bridge? I have an extra Nashville bridge, from when I put Stetsbars on my H150's. If you can't find the part, let me know.

    I beleive it is a Nashville Style... I'm just not all that up on what the differences are! Here's a pic:

    Does that look like a Nashville setup to you?

    No, that's a standard ABR-1. Even though I like the Nashville, there are MANY who prefer the ABR-1, and insist that it is one of the many essential elements for a great LP tone. I may not agree with that, but there are an awful lot of people who swear by them. You can get the replacement saddles from StewMac.

    Give Sweetwater a try..."no shipping costs" no matter how little you spend...unlike the other online giants...I got my Nashville replacement saddles from them, but they also have the ABR-1's...good pricing, too.
