    Hi all,
    I have a Rickenbacker 3001, not entirely sure of the year, that is missing one of the screws attached to the mute. I don’t really care to operate the mute but I would like to have it intact if I decide to sell it at some point. Does anybody know how I would go about finding a replacement that fits my particular bass?

    Nice, I think you’re right. The strap bolts look identical to the existing screw. Thanks!

    If you’d be willing to part with one for a reasonable price, I’d be happy to take it off your hands!
