Can any of you tell me a source for a flattop mandolin bridge? I have found some just not the size I need. It is for a octave mandolin and measures 5/8 in tall, 5 inches wide w/ a 2" bone insert. I've been on eBay, stew Mac and a few other places but I am striking out. Any help would be great. Need to get this repair done and returned to my customer.

Dan,
This sounds like a custom job. A good source for a custom bridge like that is a luthier. Being minutes from Atlanta, you should have several to choose from.

Also if a luthier is out of the question, order the tall one. Weber bridge

or make one... you only need a little patience, bow saw and some love.
Murphy bridge
