*Pics are Coming*

Seriously wtf....
My saddle just broke and flew away under my strings taking a piece of the bridge with it.

Setting- I was just sitting on my bed playing Modern Warfare 2 on ps3.(Sabotage ftw) Then I hear the loudest shot come from my guitar and I'm like HOLYSHITWTFBBQSAUCE. I think one of my strings snapped or slipped really fast or something because of what happened yesterday. Read Previous thread. I look and run my fingers across the strings to see all the strings are all there. I pick up the guitar and hear something inside the sound hole. I look at my bridge and notice like....wheres my saddle? I see it on the ground and a brown part layer on my bridge. Its the part of the bridge that snapped off and I find it inside my soundhole. I cant believe my luck. Not only may I have to go fix it but I'm going to have to take off all 6 of my strings then strings it all over again. Goddam it. I thought I was finally done with strings slipping now this??









EDIT-I dont know what wrong with 2nd pic. I dont even know if my saddle will stand upright anymore. Its only like an 80$ guitar but still....

HEY THATS MY GUITAR YOUR TALKING ABOUT

I didnt pay for it. My mom suprised me with it and she bought it from a garage sale. She knew no better and I really wanted a a classical so we were all happy. As far as getting a new one........ so not gonna happen.

So glue that sucker back in place and be done with it!

Yeah - you should be able to glue it back together pretty easily - or if you have a Guitar Center (or guitar shop) nearby you can take it to them and they can fix it for you for around $20 or so.

^--That is sarcasm, right? You're not really going to use a gluestick are you?

Glue stick or elmos glue. Scotch tape was first thing to come to be honest. Idk how much guitar glue cost but its $15+ prolly. Thats retarded unless it was a $150 guitar or higher at least.

EDIT- Taking it to the GR would be dumb to. $20 bridge repair on a used $100 guitar.

Well, I don't think that simple elmer's glue would hold the bridge together, you'd need to get some kind of wood glue or something of the sort that's a bit stronger (I'm not sure on the specifics, my luthier knowledge is just about zero).

Well theres no chance of fixing it. The break was alot worse then I thought and its just not happening with guitar glue. I thought it was only apart that didnt matter but HALF of the bridge that holds the saddle broke off.....yea....I didnt really inspect as much as I should've. Ima have to put down guitar for a while

I would buy CA glue and i would CA the wood piece on then CA the saddle in also. It will hold.
