Missing the saddle and intonation screw for the High E string.
Have not been able to locate this piece. Any help?

Welcome here, bud - I hope you stick around and join the discussions, eh!! Now, to your query...

They're the offset hockey stick ones on the Bendmaster FT, aren't they? I think Spares had some a while ago, but I'm not sure if there's any left, and those of us who have one or two spare tend to hang onto them as they're getting pretty uncommon. Have you had a look at Stewmac or the other big warehouse-y type places; they have a pretty comprehensive selection of most things...

Are you gonna show us this guitar?! Laughing

In the main, we - the forum members - upload pix to a photo hosting site and then c+p the .img code onto our posts. OK, so David's sold out; we'll have to look at other ways of getting one! I have one of a Spectrum ST which had a seized height screw which has been subjected to metal torture to get the damn thing out but it is chrome and the hardware on the Concord SX is black, yes? This is the beast, right...

Mate, I have this sitting in front of me and it is really surplus to requirements, so if you want it, PM me your postal details and I'll forward it.
Bear in mind that it had a seized grubb screw which has had everything up to and including an Oxy-acetylene flame on it; it will need some work, ie drilling out the remaining slag and re-tapping the hole for a grubb screw... still keen?! Very Happy
