    I purchased a '68 Hofner with blade pups and one of the 4 wood screws for the bridge ring PU is missing and one of the PU height adjust machine screws is missing. I've combed the internet and watched ebay and can't find these parts. Any suggestions?

    Take one of each of the existing screws to the hardware store and find a match. Most hardware stores have thread size checkers.

    Thanks but trying to find identical parts. I went to a fastener store and we couldn't find them. I can run any wood screw into the ring with a small enough head and it will work, but these screws are unique and just trying to make an honest effort to find actual replacements.
