    My wrap around bridge has a stripped out screw hole and won't intonate. What is a good replacement bridge that won't raise the action? Any info would be appreciated.

    Well, normally a picture says more than a thousand words, but in this case info about which bridge it is or a link to the seller would be quite valuable ;)

    Did it require any modifications to install?

    No, the bushings can stay
    re-doable without any work

    I used this one from Stew Mac.
    Called thee Pigtail.
    I think it was around $80.
    I really like it.

    Philadelphia Luthier has one that doesn't have individual saddles that is just fine and won't double your investment in the guitar.
    And don't turn the screws when the strings are under tension. ;)
