    Hi guys,

    I've been looking for a pair of new bridge adjusters so I can take the Full Circle PU off my bass. I lost my original set somewhere and wanted to get some new ones. The originals that came with the bass sucked anyway: the wheels were small and hard to adjust easily.

    The FC threads are 1/4x20 and just want to be able to put them on myself without having to go to a luthier or do any woodwork. Especially since I put the FC on myself without any problems.

    Just plain old aluminium ones would do just fine. There are plenty of sites that sell them but nobody explicitly lists this size. I've emailed both MPM and Cincinnatti Bass cellar last week and neither have responded. I expect that this is a very simple replacement and find it kinda suprising that it's a little difficult finding the right sized adjusters.

    Know where I can get hooked up? :help:

    From what I can tell, Lemur's website only lists 2 types: one unlisted size and the other 1 1/8". I'm assuming that 10x1.5 hand tap is a tool or another variety of wheel that isn't my size anyway. Am I missing something?
