Hi all, newbie here, I just bought a bare Westone Quantum and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction towards a bridge and a string retainer or compatible items. Im UK based if that helps. Cheers Jeff

Try this for size, it's as near as I've ever seen on Ebay. Never seen any Quantum or Rail parts on  Ebay.
