Is it the Hofner Galaxie?

Your typing makes it seem like life and death.

Look on eBay. Contact the company directly, they'll answer your questions, take a better picture too. Use the Internet.

If you don't have the correct bridge I would wait before I painted it. Maybe fill the hole and put a more traditional trem or hard tail bridge on it or buy/make a new body. Maybe you'll get lucky (and I hope you do) but those weird parts are sometimes hard to find and if you do find them usually they're not cheap.

Best of luck!
