So I started the expensive gathering of guitar tools for my DIY repair, setups, etc. The patient in the office is an "older" Alvarez Artist Series AD-60SC NAT. I just finished carving fresh bone blanks for my nut and saddle and discovered that my bridge has two tiny cracks in the rosewood -one on each side of the slot. No wonder the saddle pitches forward under pressure! And the intonation is spot on. Imagine that.
And my question is this: will a StewMac, Allparts, et al, replacement bridge fall into place or do I need to take a night class in physics?
