I don't know for sure but I'd guess that you really couldn't go wrong with a standard Martin bridge.

Another option would be to contact Washburn Customer Service and ask if they might send you a replacement bridge before you're forced to install a Martin bridge on your Washburn (heh-heh)... and I'd word it JUST LIKE THAT!

Although there are others on your list that could possibly fill the BS file, the Buzzy Tuning System is the most relevant to this forum.

No actual personal experience with it, but it seems to address a problem that I don't have, at least on any guitars that I care about when tuned using Peterson's Strobosoft. Or, tuned using my old, ringing ears.

Yup, a resident of the BS file.

Bone (and ivory) picks have been BS svery since I first tried them.

I know some places that use a IR light instead of the iron.........Just make sure you cover the top of the guitar with something to keep the IR rays and heat from reaching the finish.
   When they do this... they use cardboard to cover the top... then cover the cardboard with a towel, just exposing the bridge to the heat.

   I'm not sure I would try it, but I've seen it done
