Anybody have a place to point me? The Westone site is out of virtually everything and appears to have given up. I broke one of the small arms that hold the brass bead/barrel at the end of the string. :cry: :bawl: The trem is one of the 2 post Floyd Rose type units that were on the X189s & X199s. Thanks in advance for your help.

It is specifically the Bendmaster FT. I think it was an lesser version of the pro unit.

Ooooh, nasty... and terminal! Spares has given up because of lack of interest from the buying public - he outlayed quite a bit getting certain bits manufactured and has yet to see a return, I'm picking. Anyway, if that's a Bendmaster FT, I can't help - I've never even seen one out here!! - as all of my Westones are Bendmaster Deluxe equipped: could you take a pic or two of the offending bit and it's position in the scheme of things and post it here? Some of the guys may have other solutions....

Here is a picture, specifically, this is a Bendmaster FT. I believe it to be a lesser version of the Bendmaster pro.

If it is the regular bendmaster I just saw a "squire 51 hardtail bridge" replacement from GFS that looks like some of the saddles *might* fit a bendmaster. I say MIGHT fit, as I don't know and have never tried it. But if you try it and it does fit or not, please let us know. It will be good to list it as a replacement part. Those bridges are about $13 or so before shipping and you may get 3 useful saddles off of it.

Let us know if you try it.

These Bendmaster FTs are a mystery to me as I've still never seen one in the flesh, so this may be the answer, Thorny - good on ya, mate!
