    Does anyone know what size set screws are in the bridge saddle height adjusters in a P Lyte? It's a little set screw with a hex head. One fell out and I need to get some more. I really should just get a new bridge instead because this one's crappy.
     
  2. I think you just answered your own question.

    No, a new bridge will cost way more than a package of set screws. So I didn't just answer my own question. It's crappy but it works enough.
     
  4. are they black or silver?

    They're more of a bronzeish color, very dark, and the edges of the threads have little reddish-silver highlights and...

    I have no idea what the color is. I guess they're black. I just need the size.
     
  6. Have an ACE hardware nearby? They probably have plenty to choose from...you can bring the bass in and find which ones fit.

    Then hit each with a drop of clear nail polish as you screw it in - they won't fall out any more.

    Ace doesn't carry them, nor Home Depot or Lowe's. Went there yesterday and forgot to ask what size I need. That's why I posted this thread...in case someone knew offhand or had a P Lyte and could measure them so I don't have to go back there to ask.

    Have you tried contacting the (I'm assuming) friendly folks at Fender?
