    I have a beautiful condition Epiphone 435i in Red for sale.

    It is all original except for the bridge block.
    As most of you may know, the standard Mazak material used on the Epiphone bennder bridge was terrible and shattered under it's own tension....
    I have had a brass block machined so I could keep the original bridge.

    No rusty parts, it's all original.

    Looking for £150 + shipping fees.

    It's definitely a gem! Was so upset when the trem block went, took me 7 weeks to get this one from design to manufacture and a bit of money, but it works a treat! :D Thank you.

    Hi Matt

    I also have a 435i but without the bridge. I assume mine also had a similar problem. I got it off ebay for £17 and would like to restore. Were your bridge and saddles original and where did you get the block from

    Nice, I own an one of these guitars from 1989 but when I purchased it there was an issue with the bridge as the whole tremolo had been replaced with a wooden block in the cavity where it should’ve been, Im worried that this has de-valued the guitar even though I've replaced the parts but they aren’t authentic and some parts are still missing and not as it would've been when it was new. other then the issue with the bridge mine is in good condition.
