Replacement screws for BMG pickguard, pickups & switches?

Postby jjewett79 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 8:49 pm

Hi all,

I have a white BMG model which I swapped the stock tortoiseshell pickguard, truss rod cover & half moon plate for black ones, however the stock silver screws now stand out. I'm looking for a source for replacement black screws, but I can't seem to get any clarification on the sizes. I ordered what I thought would be a correct set from Allparts.com but none of them were correct, as the stock screws on the BMG models don't really fit the specs of a "Strat" or "Gibson" style, which is what the typical parts sites seems to reference the screw styles & sizes by.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
Jeff

Is the black plastic stock or was is custom made such as from rsconversions.com. Most likley it's a fender size screw. I normally drill and countersink for a gibson size.
