Yeah, so, I have a 1996 Baby Taylor upon which the bridge piece just cracked across the length of it through the pin holes. After doing some research I have learned the following:

With the crack the way it is, the action is effectively lowered too much and strings don't buzz but just mute out on the fret board.

Taylor offers lifetime warranty repairs to the original owner, this repair qualifies, but I am not the original owner

Taylor does not sell the bridge pieces on their site

My bridge cracked because my house got to 90%+ rH for an extended time and I left the strings wound tight. I now detension the strings on my other guitars in storage.

It seems the repair is within novice capability range (I do have wood working experience) but I would want an OEM replacement bridge piece. I'm thinking I'm probably better off getting a professional to do it since the guitar actually has collector value.

Yeah, you need to have a pro do this. There are specialized tools like deep neck clamps, specifically shaped heat blankets, etc.

Find a Taylor authorized service center close to you. They will use an actual Baby Taylor bridge. It has a specific shape and 2 index pins on the bottom for perfect alignment.
