Bridge for Stewart 'Student'

Posted on June 25, 2015 at 11:24am 1 Comment

I'm having a hard time finding a bridge for this Stewart.  It's set up with 1  7/8  X 7/16" bridge, skin head, nylon strings. The action is way too low.  It looks like I'll need 1/2" or 17/32" .  I understand poplar is best for this set up. Would this be a  custom made bridge ? Can I get ahold of a blank and file/sand it to size?
