    Can anyone tell me where I can buy some new bridge parts for my MM Stingray? Mine are getting a little corroded and can't adjust the string heights any more.
    Thanks

    Email Ernie Ball. They were very quick and responsive in answering questions and sending parts when I needed them for my '92 'Ray.

    Given that they're such nice people and so willing to help out, even when the problem turns out to be a dumb customer rather than an actual equipment failure, I can see why you would say it sucks to have to go through them.


    Wait, wait - let me re-think this.

    Please, don't laugh at this. Take the bridge out (or just the saddles) and put them for a day in a glass of Coke (just one day). It removes the stain and makes it work again!!! I did this with lots of corroded things (including some mechanisms with little screws on metal, very similar to the saddles' case) and it always worked fine (I'd will certainly do it when my SR5's bridge begins to corrode). Take care...
