Hey there,

I need a (new) bridge for my CS-400. Is there anyone who can help - maybe has got one left or knows, if there is one I can take instead the original part?

Thanks and best regards!

Welcome Nick!
I'm guessing you have broken saddles? This is a common problem with these. I know I've seen metric fender style saddles with offset adjustment screw that should drop right in but I cannot remember where. :doh: The only down side to that is you'll have to shim the bridge to make up for the height difference. I'm looking and will update when I find them.

I found some on ebay that I believe will work. I have not tried them myself so I cannot say 100% but, I'm tempted to buy a set just so I can. https://www.ebay.com/itm/6-Pieces-Genui ... 1438.l2649
You will still need to shim the plate to make up the height difference.

I would be very interested in how this turns out. If it works well, I may get in touch with the seller and get a few sets.
I have 2 CS guitars. . . :doh:

Fingers crossed. This has been a PITA for a lot of CS owners.
