edge pro saddles

I need help, I did the dumbest thing in the world and lent my dbk to a mate for a gig (I know I deserve a big slap). I think the sphincter has over tightened one of the string locks on the bridge and the damn thing has split right down the middle.

how in hell do you get hold of these things individually? I looked on rich's site but didnt know if the edge saddle's there were the same as the saddles to go in the edgo pro. If he's done this on all saddles is it worth replacing the lot?

I wouldn't think they're interchangeable although I'll admit I haven't tried. I'd contact your distributor and see if they have and EP saddles in stock.

Bitch slap self in first place !!!
Seriously dude, And way back on topic ... I've broken hundreds (not literally) of saddles, Mainly Chravel/Jackson/schaller but i have exploded the odd edge/lo pro one too,
Take Rich's advice, Get in touch with your local distributor and i am sure they'll see you right

oh what a tale of woe. firstly i ordered the saddle and headstock sent my local store a lo pro saddle so they sent it back and ordered a new saddle. when this one came through it looked ok but did not fit. it didnt have a seperate insert to cradle the string and the spar at the back was too short to make contact with the fine tuners when in the correct position for intonation (any ideas what bridge this sounds like). After all this im wondering if saddles for the 03 edge pro 's are actually available individually (i was told in one store that i would have to buy a whole new bridge !!!!!).
starting to wish i'd jut kept to lopro's now.

Sounds like an EPII saddle to me.
