Retainer bar screw

This is the screw on the string retainer bar just above the locking nut. It has a part number of 2LN2-8....and I just need 1!!! My local Ibanez agent quotes 4-6 weeks, and I have to buy a pack costing about 10GBP.
Anybody got one? It's common to the Jems and S and probably any model with a locking trem

Re: Retainer bar screw

Try a hardware store. It's just a small wood screw (albeit maybe not the color you seek). Actually, you should try stew-mac too ... the OFR screws are probably the same.

Its actually not a wood screw! Its a very fine pitch self tapping screw. Using a tapered shank woodscrew would dig out a hole in the finish. For quality gear, I always prefer to use the correct item, but thanks for the thought, I've already done it.

Yeah, I was a bit sloppy with that term. Sorry. I didn't really mean a traditional wood screw. I just meant to say that such screws aren't that hard to come by ... at least around here. But you have it done anyway ...
