glimmertwin Posted April 4, 2005 Report Share Posted April 4, 2005 Here is a bit of a predicament.... I just got the final pieces to finish my tele project. I purchased a Fender bridge from GRguitars.com and I was set to try everything out. I had holes pre drilled to where the bridge was to line up. When I went to install the first of 4 screws to mount the bridge, I got almost entirely "in" and the screw broke. It made me a little irritated but I am sure these things happen and after all, it was only one screw. I think to myself, no problem - I will find a way to fix the screw hole and in the meanwhile I can still mount the bridge with the remaining 3 screws and play it. Screw #2 goes in - no problem. Screw #3 - break. Am I just a glutton for punnishment today? Screw #4 - break. Now my question is two fold. One, how do you repair 3 broken screws in the bridge mount holes of where your tele bridge is suppose to be(there are no threads visible on any of the screw holes. Two, what would you do if you were me - is this something worth bitching about to Greg Roggers guitars? I mean, they sold me a product with defective parts. The problem is 3 new replacement screws does me no good as the swamp ash body appears to be ruined for the vintage style tele bridge - as well as my time and paint going down the drain. Am I right to ask for a new body? I really don't want a new body - I want to fix the old one but if that can't happen, then what? To make it worse, I don't really have many wood shop tools to do a clean route and repalcement of the area... Any ideas? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
