Hello All, I have a 1982 Love Rock LS-50 that I am considering replacing the bridge and tailpiece. Does anyone have any suggestions or sizing recommendations?

Thank you...

Would this be the correct replacement size for a 1980 LS 80 as well ?

I'm thinking of the ABRM-59BA, Nickel plated, natural brass saddles - Aged would do nicely, if so.
Problem I'm finding is the curved radius (12)? has flattened out somewhat and the G string is starting to choke.
Guess it's a symptom of age as a slightly older Yamaha SG showed the same signs ......
