Bring in the truss rod cover and get one that fits it.

The PRS only has the one screw doesn't it?

There's a lot of different ways you can do this.
1. Take guitar to hardware store. Find guy. Explain what you need. They'll help you figure it out.
2. Email or call PRS. I asked their facebook guy (or girl) a question once and it was answered pretty quickly. Just ask. They might just send you one. Cost of a stamp, ya know?
3. Buy a variety pack (or an assortment of sizes) of various wood screws and try them until you find one that you like.
4. Leave the cover off.

It's really not that hard. You may be thinking it's a precise science but really you can put any screw into the headstock and as long as it's not too big (big enough to split the wood) or too small then it'll do the job. If you're really worried about resale then you should go for option #2.

that is what to do. i can think of at least three or four times that calling has benefited me. once with a special type of fuse for car audio (240amp alternator) for 5400 watts of sub plus another 880watts for the mids and tweets, i called them and they sent me three. those suckers cost like $10 a piece and i couldn't get them anywhere.

another time i got a what i considered a bad batch of D'addario strings, (10pack) they next day air mailed me 10 brand new sets of strings.

even with MF, i ordered 10 tubes, they were packed terribly and you could tell they were just thrown around in there. so i call and complain, 10 free identical screws, and i answred one of their surveys and they called me and wanted to talk to me. they gave me a $20 credit on my account IN addition to the new tubes. find 20 JJ's for $80 lol

__________


point being, its always worth a try. voice that you really like them and be respectful. they usually will do their best to help
