RG7321 - Saddle "Allen Key screw and spring" needs replacing.

Hey guys!

Thanks for having me here, I was directed via a good friend of mine and a fellow Ibby fan. I was really hoping I can get some advice / pointed in the right direction with regards to replacing a missing part on my bridge.

Long story short, I borrowed my guitar to a band member for a couple of years, the band distanced while he still had the guitar and after a year of chasing and 2 months of serious chasing down I finally managed to get my guitar back, the problem being it has a few dents in it and a missing saddle section.

The piece I'm referring to is not the saddle itself (on the bridge) as I have that, but the actual Allen key pole/screw that goes into the saddle, as well as the spring over the top, has gone missing during his "care". I've called around the major distributors of parts for Ibby and they've all said I'd have to replace the bridge. Japan isn't sending the parts out anymore etc etc..

£50 minimum to replace an Allen key screw and a spring? There has to be a better way.

I was wondering if I could muster the help of you guys and girls here on finding a replacement part either from a dud perhaps one of you own or via parts on Ebay.

I believe I've found an Allen key screw on Ebay (can't post a link due to 2 posts) I'll include it as a screenshot below if I can.

Any help is hugely appreciated! <3
