Hi chaps,
Recently picked up a Westone Thunder II in reasonable condition save for the bridge which has incorrect screws and one saddle has been replaced with a plastic (graphite?) one rather than brass. Any ideas where I could find a replacement?

Hi keefaz, that may be a difficult thing to find, at least a vintage part. You may get lucky and one of the boyz here may have one.

I do have some from my recently restored Thunder IA but they're the wrong style for your guitar. Those graphite saddles are very good but they will change the tone of the Thunder eh? Good luck.

I'm not a fan of graphite in general, really. Too soft. It's annoying that it's just ONE missing saddle! Very Happy Everything else intact.

If you're able to find a stainless steel replacement that would be a decent swap. I used them in mine. They're a bit brighter though.

Alternatively a replacement can be found on the Schaller website.
Complete bridge that is.
