After thinking all was lost, I was sent by the wife to clear out the loft as part of COVID boredom duties and to my amazement, I found my first love. It had somehow fallen below a floorboard.

It does require a lot of TLC and parts.. It does surprisingly with 25-year-old strings, play really well and holds its tuning brilliantly.

It needs the holding clamps at the neck. I don't even know what to google to try and find these

The bridge string/tuning fork (whatever it is called) is snapped on one side on the A string. Also, The tones/volume knobs are now off my old marshal amp.

this was the reason it ended up stowed. The input jack came loose and was lost.

The holding plate is also lost.

Sorry, I am a bit lost but could someone help find a good resource to find these parts? I have tried googling and eBay etc but able to find the right parts / part numbers.

I would really appreciate any help. I am based in the UK.

Thanks

Neil

Why, yes... yes I can. 

Can't help with the Switchmaster knobs - you might try knicelyr in here for those! - but I have the locking clamps for the stringlock and I might even have a output socket plate handy as well.
PM me your name and address and I'll get some out to you...
An easy fix for the broken string claw is to drill a hole in the adjustment lever to thread the string through, else you're down to hunting the auction sites, or heading along to Whammyworld to purchase a Kahler claw...
