Hey dude. You can order replacement stems from many of the well stocked e-tailers. The trouble is that in most cases they wont fit well unless youīre very, very lucky. Stems are most often fitted individually to specific pipes. I have several pipes of exactly the same model where the stems are virtually identical but will only fit the one itīs made for. They look the same, and in theory should fit all, but they donīt. So I donīt recommend going that way.

Your best bet is to send it to a reputable repair guy and have one made. There are several here on this very board as a matter of fact. Wink

Yeah, I agree. I've had more luck swapping necks on guitars than mixing and matching pipe stems.
