Lost STRING LOCK BLOCK : need a replacement urgently
I have a Jem UV 777V. Recently, at a gig, my low 7th string broke and the STRING LOCK BLOCK fell out (that tiny little metal block that comes between the Lock Screw and the string on the lopro trem) while i was trying to replace the string. Since it is such a small component, I could not find it although I searched hard for it.
THere is NO WAY to get this component where I live; the sole dealer for Ibanez only scratched his head when I showed it to him and suggested that I try shoving a similar sized piece of metal between the String Lock Screw and the string. Needless to say I don't want to try this.
Please advice if there is any dealer (online or otherwise) that you know from whom I can source such a small part. I would sincerely appreciate any help in this regard as I have a gig coming up.
Thanks in advance and Best regards,
