Lyle acoustic parts needed

I recently found a Lyle 3/4 size classical Model 601 at a garage sale but it needs the plastic bridge at the top of the fretboard. Does anyone know where you can get parts for this instrument? Thanks!

Hi Joel.

The part you are referring to is called the Nut.

A nut is made by filing a blank to custom fit a specific guitar; you don't just buy them off the shelf. You just need to find a luthier locally and let him install a new nut. Ask at your local music store. Most music stores these days act as pickup/drop off sites where a luthier collects and returns guitars he works on. Some stores have a repairman on site, but this arrangement seems to be dwindling.

It's been awhile since I've had this done, but I'm thinking it is a $25-$35 repair.
