alvarez bridge replacement

Post by pete horan »

hello, the boys at stewmac directed me here for a poss. answer. i'm restoring an alvarez masterworks for my niece and need a new bridge. wondering if anyone new where i could get one. mine is the one piece alvarez and not the split, though i could use either. i can fashion one if need be but the profile is a little tricky, would like to just find a replacement if poss. it's that 'mustache' looking kind of thing.
any help? thanks.

Have you tried contacting the Alvarez folks? They have a web site and welcome inquiries.

If you can't obtain a bridge from them I think you will have to make it or have it made.
