    I need 4 for two humbuckers, in the American size.
    No luck at hardware stores, and ebay wants $7 for 'em.

    They vary all over the place, for example the ones for AL-2000's won't fit AL-3000's.
    There is no "American size" for pup height adjustment screws that I am aware of as
    some Gibson screws won't fit other Gibson pups.

    Ah. I googled and that was the impression I got. The seymour duncan size. But I believe it also fits dimarzios and many others that are all american pickups. #3-48 x 1.25"

    I'll check when I get home tonight. It'll be late since I have band practice after work. Shoot me a PM as a reminder if you don't hear from me by around 11:00pm. I bought a bunch from stewmac a while back, just need to find them and make sure they're the size you need.

    It's about seven bucks with shipping. I just think that's insane for a few screws. Thanks, though.

    rambleon, I appreciate you checking for me!

    Try Home Depot/Lowes/etc. That's where I got mine for my old Jackson. Just bring it with and find one that fits.

    I've never had luck at hardware stores and they are all different for no apparent reason.

    I bought a 4-40 tap and a box of 4-40 stainless screws. Now I just tap a new hole if I cant find the correct screws.. Super easy and cheap, now I never have to worry about not having the right screw... Springs or tubing are a different story :)

    Ok, I checked. No luck. I had got a package of springs, not screws.

    Look up a place like Fastenal local to you. They should have something that will work. They will carry way more than any hardware store.

    There's one near me, and I've never even heard of it. I'll check it out, thanks!

    And thanks for checking anyway, rambleon! I tried to quote you, but it wouldn't let me.

    Huh, I can get a whole case of them for $4k. Tempting!

    google the size that you need. You should find some sources. You may need to order more than you want.
