    i've recently acquired a stars guitars (alembic) electric mandocello that has a replacement TOM bridge and tailpiece - i'd like to restore to as close as i can to the original, so i'm looking for an 8 string brass TOM bridge and 8 string brass tailpiece - any ideas of where i could fine such a piece

    I couldn't find anything on the net (then again, it's a really big place). If it's Alembic, I'd just contact them directly. They're still in business and going strong, and I'm sure at least one person there is familiar enough with your instrument to get you a replacement bridge.

    stars guitars was a company formed by a few ex-alembic guys, so the parts aren't actually alembic parts....similar though - i contacted alembic and didn't get a response - i may try phoning if i can't locate something elsewhere

    I think Hipshot does custom pieces. I don't know what it would cost though.
