    I'm working on a Hamer T-51 "tele". The owner lost 2 of the saddle lockdown screws (the black ones that lock the saddles after intonation) on a 6 saddle Wilkinson Tele type bridge. I have tried to find a website or parts info for Wilkinson with no sussess. Anyone got any ideas where to get parts for their stuff? Or anyone have a bridge in their parts bin that you would "part out"? Gracias!

    Gotoh or older?
    Gotoh is metric and the old one is AF.

    The guitar is mid 90's or so I would guess (bridge is stock). Does that tell you anything?

    "Old one AFs" try a good hardware store first as they are standard button cap allan bolts.

    ACE usually has a good selection of screws and fasteners.

    I'd try your local hobby shop. They should have all sorts of small allen screws.
