Default Bridge fix

well I got an Epiphone pr4e with a bridge lifting up on the bass side. It's pulled up all the way from the low E to the g string. I've watched several videos on how to repair it but I'm still a little uncertain if I want to attempt it myself. I have never done anything more to a guitar than change strings and a few truss rod adjustments. What do y'all think. Is this a novice job or should I leave it to the professionals? It's a cheap guitar so if I do attempt it myself and something goes wrong I wouldn't be losing much...

Thanks!

It is definitely not a novice job. Having said that a roomate of mine in college back around 1995 had a guitar with bridge lift and he injected some Titebond in there and clamped the bridge shut. I met up with my old friend a year ago and he STILL had that guitar with the same fix on it.

So if it's truly a cheap guitar and you got nothing to lose then imho there's nothing wrong with trying a cheap fix. If you take it to a guitar tech expect to pay 75-150 dollars.
