:idea: I have to replace all of the screws on the EX, and I think it might look rather snazzy if I use black anodized allen head screws for most of it.

Google fails me. :(

These, basically, but wood screws, and small enough to use for things like the electronics cavity cover/pickup ring mounts, etc.

Get thee to a hardware store? :confused: Try a local place instead of Home Despot, you'll have better luck and find better hardware that won't strip as easily.

Also, I don't think I've ever seen an Allen head wood screw. Not that they don't exist, just... good luck.

I've been hunting for a few days now, including the HD's and a few M&P's around me. :( There has to be a specialty shop out there that carries 'em!

I see the more likely scenario that you insert a threaded metal anchor of sorts into the wood, then screw into that with one of the metal screws you posted already.

Dude that would be ace! I'll give them a ring tomorrow anyway to save you the trip, but if they do have some and you could shoot some my way, I will definitely do something nice for you in return. :D

(It might be "drew will setup your guitars", but I'll facilitate it!)

That's actually not a bad idea either.

Pm me tomorrow and let me know.

If all else fails you could stick with the BF Goodrich theme and use threaded posts and lug nuts:D

Now that I think about it, I've always had allen keys to hand in an emergency, much easier to find than a screwdriver. :lol:

Nice idea dude, but you're going to regret this. :lol:

Hey dude, I've been looking for the same thing ever since I put an amp in my truck...it came with allen head wood screws for mounting.

That was 3-4 yrs ago.

Anyway, I did another search tonight & stumbled upon this forum.

Basically, I joined to pass this find on to you...unicorn tears DO exist...

Granted, they're not black, but at least they exist.

OK...guess I can't post links till I've been a member for at least 1 day...oh well, I try to remember tomorrow.
