Hi All,

i would like to repace teh intonation screws on my 4003 with some allen keys set screws. does anyone knows what size thread and lenght i should get ? they look, and measure, without taking the bridge off the bass, like #10 or 1/4, but not sure of the length or thread pitch. since I have to gett these ordered in to back water, Canada, I don't want to tak ethe bridge apart, measure, put back tgether, wait a week or two for the screws than take apart again.

thanks to all

Tom

I'm thinking 4/40 x 3/4".

The intonation screws are indeed 4-40 x 3/4. But perhaps you're thinking of the bridge height screws, which are 6-32 x 5/8.

Joey, and Mr. Hall,

I stand corrected. upon further investigation, they do look like 4-40. there is head on them and that is what i was measuring. i will grab some 4-04 x 3/4 and see how i make out.

thanks.

Tom
