Hello All,
May I say the 620 is an incredible machine. She does it all - anything from Zeppelin to Kelly Clarkson.

I play professionally anywhere from 4 to 12 hours per week.

The 620 enjoys vibrating her screws out of the bridge. The screws I am referring to are the four outside the bridge cover - the four with the springs. I am in dire need of screws and springs and forgive me, I cannot tell which ones are which on the parts page.

Any idea of the correct nomenclature?

I use Rotosound or Curt Mangan 10 gauge strings. My amps are an ancient Fender Bassman 100 (master volume) and Mesa Dual Rectifier.

Thanks for any help - this page is just as a Rickenbacker guitar herself is - unique and especial.

A tiny drop of Loctite 242 (blue) Threadlocker on the screw threads next to the saddle from the small point of a toothpick will stop the screws from rattling out, while still allowing intonation adjustment. It's available at auto parts and hardware stores . . .

Thanks for the tip - the old tricks are the best eh? Alas, when no screws are available for such operational chicanery - I'm back to square one - I need to purchase (from this very website of course) the correct screws and springs 620's bridge. Any info on the part numbers ( I can't tell which is which on the parts page) appreciated greatly.

That would be SKU 05302 SCREW SOCKET 4-40 x 1/2 CAP HX. I agree with the LocTite advice.

Also, it might be worth your while to speak with customer service at 714-545-5574.
