Hi:

If anyone has an X510 and can help out, I could really use the following information:

A) If the guitar is in tune, with correct intonation, can you provide the offsets from the center of 12th fret to the contact point at the bridge?
B) Can you provide a close-up image of the bridge, with a ruler by it for scale?

I have an X510 which is missing the upper section of the bridge. It was cracked and I think it got thrown out at some point. I have the lower portion - the support - but not the upper.

I'm having the guitar repaired, and the luthier working on it would like any details regarding the bridge. Of course the upper portion is offset and has staggered steps in it to set the intonation for each string. He's located a similar bridge but we don't know how well it will match, and I don't have any reference for the original bridge other than the picture at the bottom of this site.

thanks for any help you can provide!

I don't have one of these so can't help on A. and B. but maybe on the bridge.

One of these at Stew Mac might do the trick and hopefully pop right onto your base.

Good luck

hi mitsurgi

don't know if this is a direct replacement, but it is a period piece and probably made by uncle matt, so it would likely be a good fit
