Does anyone have, or know where I might find, a set of original bridge saddles for my TB 1000 Standard?

Yeah, I have 5 of 6 originals that have the adjustment screws rusted shut on. I'm thinking about having them machined. I replaced them with chrome generic ones of a similar size, but I'm convinced the tone of the brass originals has more bite. Anybody else have a lock on where to locate these? I'm up for going in on having a batch machined from scratch to match the original specs if there is enough interest.

Yeah I'm having a similar problem with my saddles. At least two of them are locked up and I wanted to raise the action on them too. You mentioned that the originals were made of brass? It doesn't look like mine are brass though.

Mine are original and are nickel (or chrome) plated brass. I'm assuming you've tried WD40/Liquid Wrench etc. to try to loosen the screws? I would think that stuff should be able to unfreeze 'em.
