Over the summer, without taking notice - my bridge has began to bend towards the finger board. I have had the bass (Shen) for a little over a year now, and ive had to set the bridge myself. I spoke with my instructor and he suggested a repair man to take it to, but I am curious if I am able to salvage it. A friend of mine suggested boiling the bridge, putting it under some text books, and putting 'er back on. Is this a common DIY repair? Heres a picture of my bridge. Is it salvageable? Am i going to just have to dive in and buy a new bridge/have it repaired? What could happen to my bass if I do not repair it - will the bridge eventually crack? Thanks!
