Schecter Hellcat VI problem. Suggestions?

    Hey all, I've had my Hellcat VI for probably about 10 years now, I bought one real early on into their production.

    Anyway, I picked mine up to play it this afternoon, and noticed that the stop tail is starting to bow (probably due to string tension). I checked some pics of the ones online and mine is definitely not straight, but they are on all of the pics I viewed. It doesn't seem to affect playability yet, but it is noticeable. I'd like to replace it with a stop tail that has more strength than the original piece.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Website said the OEM is a Tone-pros unit. But otherwise it looks like a standard stop tail.
