i bought the guitar and the block underneath the bridge had snapped so ive replaced the block with one from my other guitar its a bit smaller but it fits and yet the whammy still doesnt work the bridge is raised off the surface like it was before as you can see in the pictures but its not as worse


the guitar only works thru the amp if the volume is on 10?
