Right, so the screws on my licensed floyd rose has eroded (in that picture is the 2 screws on the left). And i need to change my strings very soon, how should i go about replacing the screws? If i can't get them out with my screwdriver as the heads have been eroded to the point where the screwdriver cannot fixate the screws.

Worse comes to worst, I might take it to my guitar shop and pay 15 quid to have it restrung and hopefully they'll change the screws.

I had a problem like that - try using pliers to turn them and get them out.

I had a problem like that. Is it the screw that no longer holds in the wood, or is the actual screw? Because if it's the first, you'll most likely have to get it professionally repaired if you're not very good with tools

You'll probably have to buy a new trem claw. Really shouldn't cost you over $5, and you may be able to get the screws by themselves, which should be less.

EDIT: I don't know if this site is trustworthy, but here's an example of cost. https://www.guitarpartscentral.com/4.0x35mm-tremolo-claw-mounting-screws-2pk.html

I just ordered one from Ebay, hopefully it fits! There wasn't much choice and it said it fitted for Strat-style like guitars. mine is a super strat so it should all be cool.

Cheerss.

Honestly you probably could have just pried the screw out, brought it to a hardware store, and bought two screws there. Probably would have saved you a good amount of money.

Strat style may refer to a non locking vintage trem, not sure if this affects it tho.

Yeah you're right but eitherway this money is peanuts.
