    OK, I'm daft, but I've replaced mine with chrome, panhead bolts. Easy to adjust and perfectly smooth tops.

    Hardware stores... I haven't seen one of those for about thirty years. ;)

    For UK readers there's a Top Gear joke in there somewhere!

    Yeah, sounds daft to me. . . like whoever heard of doing something as "off the wall" as adapting... Stranger than a Kitty Cat Water Ballet school..:p

    don't you know that unless you use genuine authentic, steeped in vintage mojo and cryogenically treated original screws, your tone is gonna suck...:D

    Presumably Leo. We have seen eBay listings posted on here for genuine pre-CBS Fender neck shims. o_O

    I'd best not mention the original pre-CBS masking tape for the pickup wires then... o_O

    Never thought of that! I'll replace them and do a comparison under strict laboratory conditions immediately. I am truly sorry for publishing this stupid idea, if anyone has even thought about doing it please stop now! Do you know what? I didn't even check on the formula of the metal used. Jeez, I'm some kind of idiot!

    I had purchased a set of Highwood Vintage Saddles from the Netherlands, took about 2 months to receive them & $65.00 / I’m in NY. not sure which Strat I have they will go on, I’m sure I’ll figure it out. Kind of lost the thread on which someone mentioned these.
    I finally got them! Supposedly no sharp screw heads.
