    Does anyone have a Tele screw sizes list that they can post,
    like pickguard screws sizes, Bridge plate mounting screw sizes, Neckplate
    screw sizes, etc. I had one but I seemed to have misplaced it.

    Im actually wanting Bridge mounting screw size this morning.
    Its a real bummer gettin' old.

    Thanx-

    Do a good search...there is definitely a screw list in the archives. I've used it often just to check my memory, which is often wrong and needs checking.

    1 inch long #6 wood screw with an oval head is the Fender spec for mounting a vintage style Tele bridge. A Sheet metal screw will work equally well, and a flat head instead of an oval head can make it easier to get your 5th and 6th string saddle back closer to the bridge bottom. I like these.

    Here's a list I posted a while back. Kingoftheroad's list is more comprehensive than mine.

    Anyone know a good cheap source for the slotted #8 1-3/4 stainless oval head neck screws? Ditto slotted #6 1 -1/4 oval head bridge mount screws?

    I've bought them from Mr. Bill Callaham, and suppose I may again soon. ( I just end up buying too much other cool stuff at the same time. )

    MIM Std Tele 6-saddle modern saddle screw size

    i know, this is an old thread.

    didn't want to start a new one for this little tidbit of information.

    for those who want/need the MIM Std Tele 6-saddle modern saddle screw size (it's so darn easy to lose the things):

    Hex Set Screw
    Metric
    M3
    Machine screw
    0.50 pitch
    6mm length
    Uses 1.5mm hex wrench

    the intonation screws are also M3 0.50 machine screws, length = 15mm (Low E, A, D, G saddles)and 18mm long (B, high E) and pan head with phillips+slotted drive.

    all the other screws (AFAIK) on a MIM Std are SAE/English spec.

    Sorry if this has been mentioned above, but I didn't see it. I need to find the right size of allan wrench to adjust the bridge saddle heights on my 2000 US-made standard Tele. I've tried various allan wrench sets, but nothing is small enough.

    Also, what size for the tilt adjustment thingy on the back at the neck plate?

    Thanks.
