    My new-to-me Squier VM Bass VI is missing an intonation screw. I’ve determined that the diameter and thread pitch match the screws for my Wilkinson tele bridge. Does anyone know whether the thread is a standard M3 x .5 pitch or a fine M3 x .35 pitch? I still don’t have a replacement from GC/MF and I really want to buy a tiny screw so I can use all six strings without loosing a barrel at the high E. No one local has anything but a .5 pitch and I’ll check tomorrow whether that works, but I bet it’s fine thread.

    The screws in my Wilkinson bridge are M3×0.5.

    Whenever I need something like this, I take the part that I have to the fastener aisle at Home Depot/Lowe’s. They have the demo panels on the walls where you can try/compare different bolt patterns.

    Yeah, I did exactly that, yesterday. Lowe's didn't have any metric that small, unfortunately.
