As long as we’re discussing bridges for Stratocaster a couple of posts ago, I’m hoping you all can help me out with my dilemma..... I have a 1985 American Standard, one of the first to be released through Guitar Center. The area of the bridge that pivots on the 2 posts has worn out. You would think, “No big deal, I’ll just order a new bridge.” So, I found the correct bridge...... or so I thought. My current bridge attaches with these screws. The screws that are now used are a ferrule with a threaded insert, like the one pictured below. Obviously, the pivot points wearing out became an issue, thus causing them to change the screws. So, my question: Do I take a drill to my guitar in order to drill holes to fit the ferrules and use the new screws, or do I simply reuse the old screws, and just wait for this to happen again?
