    Have tried eBay and many other online retailers but none of them seem to stock on an acoustic bass bridge!

    My bridge pin snapped on the bass so does anyone know where I can get a replacement pin or get the entire bridge tailpiece swapped to something like the Fender acoustic bass?

    Darn, no luck there as well... Went through the entire site, 99.9% of the stuff there are for upright basses.

    yeah, tough one.....I don't think I've ever seen an acoustic bass bridge for sale on the zillions of webpages I've visited.

    You might have the best luck just contacting a luthier via email who you know Makes acoustic basses, and asking them if they would sell you a pin or bridge, or where on earth you might be able to find one...

    Lemur is great. If you're unsure about ordering something online, call them. They're very knowledgable.
