replacing saddle on UV trem
I bought a pretty beaten-up black Universe at a auction a while ago, and one of the things that was wrong with it was that the high-E string's saddle on the Edge trem had broken or seized up, so the previous owner had it replaced. Though the replacement works OK, it is a standard chrome saddle instead of the Cosmo Black.
I've gotten the neck and body of the guitar repaired, and now the only thing that's bothering me is the one "silver tooth." Is that something that you guys would even bother getting replaced? I don't know how to do that kind of work myself, so I'd be paying a shop to do it.
I own a couple of other, nicer UVs and Jems; I bought this guitar for cheap knowing that it was banged up, so I'd have a guitar I wouldn't be afraid to gig hard. But for some reason I've put almost as much money in the neck and body work as I paid for the thing. So does it make sense to get that saddle fixed just for the cosmetics, or should I leave it be?
Thanks for any opinions. And anyone have a ballpark huess offhand how much the replacement part and work would cost if I decided to do it?
