Screws going missing out of the bridge :S

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by (hed)-less, Dec 5, 2005.

  1. I play an Ibanez BTB 406 QM six string; and I noticed the other day that the screw that connects the bridge to the saddle for the C string has gone missing :S :S :S

    I have no idea how this has happened, I'm worried about using the bass until I can find a replacement incase the spring goes missing, but at present the C string is still playable and stays intune suprisingly. I have no idea what size the screw is as it isnt a standard screw - additionally I have contacted Ibanez but I am yet to get a reply :crying:

    Does anyone have any suggestions whether they be for a temp fix or something solid? Have any of you had similar problems?
  2. I had a similar problem with a Squier years ago. Take the bass with you to a good hardware store...not a "building supply center"...a hardware store with a large inventory of fasteners. Show the guy exactly what you need and your problem will be solved in a matter of minutes at a cost of a few pennies.
