    Hi there,

    I have a pesky screw on the volume knob of my p-bass that keeps coming loose. Since it keeps the knob on, I'm tired of it coming loose at inconvenient times. I was planning on using a thread locker, like Loctite, but then I figured I'd better check with those who know... If I use a thread locker, will I ever be able to back the screw out without a huge hassle? Thanks,

  2. Just be sure to use the blue loctite & you should have no problems removing it later. Remove the screw, clean it well & add a small dab onto the threads; let it dry and reassemble.

    Better yet, use the green one. Its made for small screws.

    Or clear nail polish. ANY of the above except Red loctite, which you will NOT be able to remove.
