Are you saying these insert screws have super hard screw heads that can be tightened more than regular screws?
I would like to hear your thoughts on this, because what you said (especially the tonal improvements) sounds a bit ridiculous otherwise.
HUH. Wood screws will strip the wood in the heel of the neck far before they will strip the threads of the screws.
