HELP! Saddle screws for Fender Jaguar Modern Player

    First time poster and a pretty mundane question sorry. I have just played a gig in Berlin and lost a saddle screw from my FJMP. Now I am back in Netherlands and my bass in France so I can't do any meaningful comparisons with my other basses. Does anyone know which other saddle screws fit the FJMP? I've tried finding FJMP spares online but can't find anything specific. Or indeed, where I might order some FJMP spares from?

    Another saddle screw (also on the E saddle - I play with a pick and hit it hard) had also fallen out. I'm way too old to modify my playing style...is this a problem with FJMPs? Me? Or an unfortunate consquence of the two?

    By the way, I LOVE this bass as much or more than any I have owned. Such a workhorse. And so much fun to play.

  2. You may be forced to replace the bridge if you can't find replacements, but if you can figure out the thread and size, you can order replacements from any standard bolt & screw online source.

    If you can find replacement saddles for the bridge, they should come with set screws.

    When you find replacement screws, as you set them use clear nail polish on each set screw to keep if from moving or falling out. $1 (or the equivalent) buys peace of mind.

    Thanks for the tip Pilgrim. When I find a saddle screw (or saddles with screws) I shall deploy the nail-polish.
    By the way, my wife is from near Fort Collins and we were there last year on my first visit to the "west" of the US. Lovely place. Good folk.
