    Hey all,

    I have an RG7321 for which I need to replace the bridge on, as the original is rusty as all get out, and I can't even adjust the saddles anymore.

    I've had a difficult time locating a replacement part that seems specific to the old-style hardtail design (not the Gibraltar Standard) that my guitar has.

    I did find this item which I think might be a suitable replacement, though it appears to have only 4 screw holes versus the 6 on the original - https://www.allparts.com/products/sb-5100-7-string-non-tremolo-bridge?variant=18579872612409 - but I'm not 100% sure here.

    I've seen recommendations of Hipshot ones, but honestly this is basically a backup/practice guitar, so I don't want to spend $100+ on a replacement bridge for a non-main guitar.

    Anyone have experience with replacing this bridge, or could confirm if the one above is a suitable replacement?

    Thanks, and shred on!

    Even if it's really crusty some naphtha and 3-In-One oil with an old toothbrush should get it perfectly clean and functional.

    agreed. You can also McGuire's scratch X. It will polish up all the crustiness.
