Need pickup screws...

    Does anyone know if the emg selects use the same screws as other emg pickups? I just traded for a MIM J that has these in it, and the pickup screw are pretty much all stripped or missing. I've been to several hardware and music stores, but can't seem to find any useable replacements. Any suggestions?

    PS: If this is more applicable to the setup forum, then I apologize to the mods.

    Thanks. Believe it or not, I've been to four differing local music shops and three hardware stores today trying to find a viable replacement with absolutely no luck.

    get used to it.

    There's no such thing as a standard in basses. So expect the same with any mod in the future and begin thinking what may not work and what you can do to make it work from the time you decide what you want. It will get you asking questions (and getting answers) beforehand rather than being suprised once the piece is in hand.
