screws

Where can I get all the screws for the body of a front-routed jem style guitar in cosmo black? *better yet... Are there even cosmo-black screws or do they just use flat black on those guitars? *

Either way, I don't really want to search through the hardware store if I don't have to... I was hoping Rich or someone sold cheap replacement screw sets. *If it's not cost effective, I'll just dig around the stores for them.

Maybe, I'm looking at original MC screws (which you'd figure would be cosmo) and they just look black to me. They sure look nothing like a bridge finish.

You can see the difference between the ibanez "cosmo" screws and black ones from "allparts" or other brands. The shiny-ness and color difference is obvious. Is it a 100% color match to the cosmo-black bridge and tuners... not likely. Never underestimate people who change pickguard screws on guitars they sell... if they're flat black on a MC they were changed somewhere... glen

here's what kevan did on my BFP the day i got it...the screws were kinda rusty and uncared for.

He took all the screws and stuck the points in a cigarette box, then took some black nail ploish and painted the tops. *They dried in a few minutes and they still look good.

You can make 'em any color you like that way too - i'm sure you could find some approximation of Cosmo at the drug store...even cosmo pink for you, Mr. 80s Freak

This is all assuming that you already have screws

Happy Screwing

They're original, and yea I can see the different sorta shiny to them, guess that's what I have in stock (but they still just look black to me)

On order. Chesbro never has the right AANJ sets, all the screws are the same length! Bah.

I've done the marker thing, and I bet nail polish looks a lot better.
