So the saddle snapped on my acoustic the other day which shouldn't really be a big deal except the bottom half that is stuck into the bridge was glued into there..... anybody have any ideas on how to get that out?

Thanks

Not something I'd recommend doing yourself but a decent repairman or luthier shouldn't have any problem.

If wood glue was used, a little heat may loosen it. Like the above posters said, taking it to a good tech or luthier is probably the best way to go about it.

a white phosphorus grenade thru the soundhole should do the trick in loosening up that glue, if you don't have any my second choice would be a luthier... thankfully i have a few spares just in case !

Grenades, guitars, or luthiers?

OK, you have to very careful here, (so does the pro, if you go that route.

Whatever wood glue they used, will be stronger than the wood of the bridge. Which means, if you are successful at pulling the saddle piece out, it may still have pieces of bridge wood attached.
