    Does anyone know the correct bolt size of a Floyd Rose/Ibanez locking nut bolt, that goes thru the back of the neck and screws into the nut. Obviously I need two of them.

    I don't know but I have a Floyd locking nut that needs those two screws too so looking forward to finding out. They might have two sizes though? Metric and imperial? There are a lot of Floyd rose clones getting around these days.
    I was just going to order a cheap pair on ebay and hope they fit.

    If yours is German made chances are the German Floyd rose screws will fit.
    Likewise if you can find a listing for Ibanez floyd screws from the same era.

    I think the thread will be easy to match, the head size and depths might need a bit more research or guess work when put up against the neck. Much easier if the holes are already drilled in your neck. I plan to modify a standard neck to fit mine.

    I purchased two bolts and nuts at a hardware store. The locking nut i bought from China wasn't threaded like it should, so I was able to use the bolts and nuts through the nut and neck body. It works like a charm. Tightened up nice. Nuts and bolts fit perfectly.
    However I do not know the bolt size. He just matched it up for me. I brought the nut into the hardware store.
