Don't know the year but this is a fairly seldom seen Entertainer model, and it needs some work: missing the bridge, stop bar, one knob and the nut is broken. Mounting posts are still there though.
How difficult is it to find a replacement for the stop tail & bridge?

Seller is being a tad optimistic perhaps considering the state of the instrument? CAD$350

Pretty sure a standard Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece would do the trick even if they're not OEM, but C$350!? I don't think so!

Yeah, I think I'd be tempted if it was a whole lot cheaper, and I do not feel like "negotiating".

It's a hell of a long way from me, and having another look at it, I think she's been pretty badly misused.

I notice that the tuners were also replaced with a locking set but half are missing the screws! And how do you manage to break both E string slots in the nut unless you've been pounding the junk out of it? I have a hunch there could be some hidden problems.
