    Hi guys,

    I'm building (trying to - I'm new at this) an LP Junior. Received some hardware, truss rod and a P90 dog ear pup today. Being new to P90s I'm confused as to why the screws it came with are 1 1/2 inches long. I've found that the pup is fixed to the guitar top and only needs a slight route so why 1 1/2 inches? Am I missing something here?

    Thanks as always,

    Paj

    Sounds like you got the soapbar screws maybe?

    From what I (think) I know that would make sense. The pups were listed as dog ear and indeed are. Perhaps I should email the company and ask.

    Just looked up soapbar screws. Yep, that's what they are. I've emailed supplier see if they send me the correct ones. I've got loads of spare pick guard screws I'll check see if they fit.

    Thanks.
