    put a badass on it and call it a day , you can order them in multiple configurations and relatively low cost. Just match it up to your needs

    Whatever you do, make sure the stringspacing is the same as your old bridge.
    The SR have most of the time, 16.5 mm string spacing. Not sure if it's the same for you.

    Hi Brown_Bear_13,

    The late-1980s SR800LE came with an Omni-Adjust bridge made for Ibanez by Gotoh and the spacing is 19mm.

    So you should be able to use about any 19mm spaced bridge on it. I would look for one with the same (or very close) base dimensions to keep from having a bunch of visible screw holes.

    All the best,

    I can't make out in the photo what the problem is. Did it break somehow?

    thats based on the Gotoh 206 and has been long discontinued. the only thing i can add when finding a replacement is maybe take the opportunity to upgrade to a top loading bridge like a hipshot or stuff that gotoh does now, but i dont think theres a direct replacement for those mounting points. PM me and let me know if you want to get rid of whats left of your bridge.

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    There is no shortage of bridges on ebay ...

    I like the olp stingray bridges a lot.

    Yeah: Howabout a clear photo, and an explanation as to what's wrong with it.

    Moved and seconded. Bridges seldom "give out"...there are specific issues which you should be able to enumerate. If you don't like the bridge, or it's the wrong color, or you lost a set screw, just say so. And the photo in the first post is useless. Please try it again with actual light present.
