    I stripped the screw head on the screw for my bronco's tree string. I've been looking high and low just the screw but nothing is fitting. I've decided to just buy a new string tree. I found the parts number for it on Fender's website, but google is pulling up several different finishes and prices. As long as the numbers match it'll fit right?

    If it's a button like most other Fender basses I'm sure it will be like all the rest of their metal parts, available in either chrome or nickel plating.

    The way to tell the difference is to clean it and then look at the metal where light is reflecting off it. If the metal has a bluish cast to it, it's chrome plated, if that cast is yellowish, it's nickel plated.
