In need of a new guitar bridge. Help please

I own a washburn electric guitar with a hardtail bridge, I am in need of a new bridge becauese when I bought it the allen nuts were rounded off, so my question is will I have to buy a washburn hardtail bridge? Or will any hardtail bridge do? Thanks in advance

most hardware websites (like gotoh, schaller and the like) will have routing templates and measurements. just a matter of measuring your bridge and seeing if anything which is readily available is a direct swap.

is it possible to use a bolt remover and then buy new parts? Check fastenal.com or their local stores. Shipping is pricey for small orders online, but they have lots of sizes and materials.

are you talking about the height adjustment screws in the saddles?

if so you can buy new saddles for your bridge at www.guitarfetish.com

You can get those replacement screws for like two dollars.

EDIT: I'm assuming this is similar to a Strat hardtail bridge, as opposed to a TOM bridge. If you take the strings off (Some will say to do this one at a time for safety of the neck due to string tension) Then unscrew the back screw connecting the saddle to the bridge itself. The height allen screws should be removable by hand at this point because there's no tension. If you're lucky, your height screws will be fitted for an allen wrench on both sides. You can just flip them over, and BAM fixed for free (Well, except new strings)

Not nessisarily, I replaced all the saddles on my Tele bridge with Stainless saddles and it was $13 where a bridge would have cost $30.

Oh ok I thought it would have been more expensive than that.

No it is actually a really cheap upgrade you can do to a hard tail/ trem style guitar.
