I've heard of this before.  I don't know what you would use. And I have one of these and it hasn't be out of the case for awhile (too many guitars).  Scary.

I had my brothers repaired locally. They used epoxy and it had to setup over 3 weeks.

Super glue can work thought I am not sure that's permanent. slow dry epoxy is the correct long term solution. Stewmac have some nice clamps to use while it is setting up.

Just took mine to the guitar hospital for the same problem. The standard method for this problem is to remove the bridge, clean it up and reseat it using hot glue. Complicated by the undersaddle pickup. This is a job for a luthier, not one I would do myself. It's worth the $100-150 to get it done right. Had the guitar about five years now, with minor issues along the way. Have switched to custom light gauge strings, at luthier's recommendation. Guitar is a little high-maintenance but for me well worth it. Still compares well in sound and playability to higher end US made instruments. Though I'm also testing some of the Martin PA's for a more aggressive sound.
