Part needed

Hi everyone, I got (yet another) cheap-o guitar from Craig's List and it's missing one of the saddle screws. Anyone know where I can get one? I saw saddles advertised but not the screws alone. Guitar is a Peavy Raptor. It's the low E in the pic that needs the screw.

try ebay or all parts. Or just upgrade all the saddles since you said its a cheap guitar doing that also helps with string breakage

How about taking out one of the other saddle screws and go to Home Depot, Lowes, or local hardware store.

That could work, too, thanks.

Yes, honestly this was the best customer service I've ever gotten. An actual person (in America) answered the phone, no recording. She quickly transferred me to the guitar guy, who immediately offered to send me the part for free.
