Long story short.

The bridge on my uncle's Lanikai LU-8E broke. I want to fix it. Here are some pictures.

So. Should I send it to Lanikai and have them fix it? Go to a guitar shop or something, and see if they can fix it?...Should I leave it be

No...it was practically destroyed - tiny bits and pieces, just WHAMMO - gone.


I'd need it, huh?

This is a job for a luthier...

Yes this would not be something for an amateur to cut their teeth on. I'd try and find someone who has worked on ukes also.
