I agree with just about everything said here, except using cedarwood for a shim. I would use a hardwood shim, as the bridge is made of hardwood and cedar is very soft. Bone would be fine, but probably more difficult for someone without experience to shape.

Look at that😁
I used a nail filer and filed the bridge slot from that small hindrance shown in the red circle and now it fits squarely
