need screws for classic non-AANJ neck joint

anyone know where I can get some screws for a non-AANJ neck joint?
need the ferrules too if possible. can see plenty of sets for this on the bay but nothing for non AANJ. difference I can see is that AANJ has 2 mid length and 2 long screws, a classic joint I believe has 4 screws the same size.

anyone can point me in the direction of a uk seller i'd be grateful.

cheers

For what guitar?

I don't know if it's the same screws or not, but the square-heel joint on RG550 at least has different size screws, because the heel is tilted at an angle.

Re: need screws for classic non-AANJ neck joint

same is true for the JS and Radius square heels: 2 shorter screws on the skinny side. To replace them, I generally buy the standard (same length) Allparts screws and cut 2 of them to the proper length. That does require that you then reshape the end of the screw though, so a grinding wheel or small file is handy. But at least they're readily obtainable.

Oh I see, so it's likely that the guitar will actually need 2 short and 2 longer screws?
It's an RG 750 body with a Jem 777 VDY neck.

Yes, it's absolutely certain in fact.

I've going there for about 8 years. They have moved shops now, and Pete has sold the business on, but it is still a great shop and George and Steve are just fantastic to deal with.
