New RG2550E, one loose stud...

My RG2550E arrived today and before I set it up I decided to change the pickups. When I removed the trem I noticed one of the studs was lose, and even when I tried to screw it in, it stayed loose. What I'm concerned about is how much it moves when the trem is not installed. I haven't checked tuning stability yet but I'm sure this will have a negative impact.

Now I've already ordered a pair of locking studs from Rich yesterday, but until they arrive, is there anything I could do to prevent it from moving in it's socket? Thanks!

Heh, real dimarzios are already installed in the bridge and neck, but no thanks for swirling and high ticket sales

EDIT: Here are the DiMarzios after installation, Evo2 Bridge and Evo Neck...

You need real Dimarzios if you play classical, blues X-TREME metal, shred, and Vai.
