    Obvious out of the way, Phillips Head is a good choice, especially on mass produced guitars, because it's the most ubiquitous, everyone has a screwdriver that can handle it. But it blows my mind that everytime I go to get new neck mounting screws, phillips head is the only choice. I've never...

    Hi, I had left my black Sterling JP70 in a case for a few months, and oddly enough, even though I had left two packs of silica gel in the case with the guitar, when I opened the case a few days ago, the strings, the hardware (tuning heads), neck screws, back plate screws, pick-up pole pieces...
  3. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So for some reason, I'm finding my results to be quite satisfactory doing this. I've been lowering pickups (Black Winters, Stock PRS pickups) lately and raising the screws and I'm getting great clarity, plenty of bite, and balancing for the treble strings is MUCH easier now. Has anyone else...

    Howdy all. I've got a project beginning soonish involving Ibanez parts. Will start sharing details as soon as the vital part I've just ordered arrives but for now I'm just wondering if anyone would recommend anywhere for AANJ screws? I've looked on eBay/Reverb and they're around... Just...

    I have tuners, but not the screws to mount them to headstock, you know, those tiny ones. Any idea which ones to get, or a link to some? I need about 20-30 of them overall, want the ones that the gotoh tuners come with. Can anyone help?

    So I'm doing my normal post-new-guitar disassembly and cleanup of the 2027, and at least one of the screw holes for the trem claw was stripped, the other not far behind. I did the usual repair, jamming a toothpick and wood glue in there, and now I'm waiting for it to set. Before I put it all...

    A while ago I superglued these screws so they wouldn't come loose, but now I fucking NEED to get the block off!!! I'm going to put together a partscaster for a guy in town and I suggested my leftover Gotoh Floyd (with a "Frankenbar" since the old broke at the screw tip), but it's going to be a...

    Hello! I've got an NGD on the way soon and like with most of my guitars, I want to put Dunlop Strap locks on it. Problem is that I don't want to have to drill deeper into such a nice guitar to make the screws fit in. I saw on Allparts' website that they do the buttons with the screws for that...

    We all have those parts that we never use that inhabit our parts box that will someday be inherited by our grandchildren who will say things like "Holy shit, Grandpa was a hoarder who sucked at guitar". This is one of mine. Sorry for the misleading title. EMG isn't suddenly producing sweet ass...

    So, I had purchased a used RGT42DXFM, and just put in a set of Pegasus/Sentient pickups (holy fuck the amount of solder i had to take off), forgetting to block off the bridge. I went to readjust the back spring screws, and found out one of them is stripped. Now, I figure I just go and buy two...

    Ok. I have this gold OFR that's about 13 years old. Everything is original except for 1 of the little block inserts, as I lost 1. There is some slight pitting or something as seen in the pic, and the low e string saddle is a bit chewed up on one side. I think back when I was playing out a lot a...
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Where can I get some that are maybe 1/4 or 1/8" longer than the stock DiMarzio ones? I can't get the direct mounts in my IndoJax high enough for maximum br00tz.
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts) I picked up an OFR to use on one of my guitars. I lined it up on the guitar and the locking screws hang so far back due to my heavy gauge strings that I can't pull up on the bar due to the screws hanging over the recessed route. It's also an issue I'm having with...
  14. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Got a few guitars that I'm working on and need to track down some screws to direct mount the pickups. I don't want to drill out the tabs on the pickups in case I want to put them in another guitar. I know the thread on all of them is a standard 3-48 so I need a screw smaller. Here in Australia...
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, in my band we change between drop A and B standard for a few songs. I'd like to be able to undo my lock nut without having to have my multitool handy at all times. Has anyone seen this done before? Anyone know the screw and thread size of typical Ibanez locking nuts?

    Let the thrill of owning a drill go to my head and decided there is no reason why I should do anything by hand anymore. Got a little overzealous and stripped a screw. Please tell me I need more power tools to fix the problem created by owning power tools.
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I got them in the mail today. Tonally? Tough to say if there's a bit change here - maybe a slightly crisper attack and sustain seemed a little longer, but tough to say for sure. Call it inconclusive. However, Floyd Upgrades markets these as primarily being an improvement in strength, and...

    FYI. If you're looking for these and can't find them in your local hardware stores, these are the ones you want: Amazon.com: Ernie Ball Pickguard Screws 40-Pack Black: Musical Instruments None of the places around me had them - plenty that were close, but these were what I was looking for...

    I need a set for the new RG-thing, but I have no idea what size they are. The neck I'm getting from The Swirl Dude doesn't have the screws. Anyone know what size they are? it's a MIJ AANJ neck (if that matters).
