Need help asap!

Hello, I got a question about the floyd rose, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, But as i was re-stringing my Jackson KE3, i was on the last string (High e) and as im tightening the string clamp screw (screw on the actual floyd rose, not the locking tuner's) on the floyd rose, it twists off! the bit peice came off and the actual part of the screw that screws in is still in there. If i took it into a guitar store, would a guitar tech be able to take off the stuck bit and replace the string clamp screw? Is this a simple repair? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Even if in the worst case scenario when the screw can't be removed you can always replace the just that one saddle. They don't cost much so either way you should be fine really.
