89' 560 Pickup Ring Screws

Hi there, does anyone know the thread size of Ibanez pickup ring screws. I've picked up an 89 RG and the screws are corroded so wanted to refresh.

The longer screws are approx 16mm and the shorter are 10mm but does anyone know what thread size ibanez use? I don't have any calipers to hand.

Thanks!

I don't know the thread size. If you find some screw that will work but have a different thread you could always put a drop of thin CA glue in the screw holes. This will allow you to re-tap them for the new screw. It's only a wood screw into a wood body.

As ever thought i would update this as i got a set of callipers yesterday.

The screws are M 2.5

The old RG's had sloped pickup rings hence the screws being different sizes (12mm and 18mm)

Re: 89' 560 Pickup Ring Screws

Are these the screws that hold the pickup to the ring, or the screws that hold the ring to the body? In other words, when you say 16mm and 1.8 mm, are you referring to the length? (I'm looking for replacement screws and I'm having a hard time finding them).

The ring screws rather than the pickup ones. Ignore the decimals I out them in by accident! 12mm and 18mm shaft!
