I am trying to adjust my tremolo, and need to loosen the screws to reduce the tension on the springs, and found that if I loosen the screws almost to the point where they need to be, they come out because they are too short. It appears that these are #8 1 3/4" wood screws, so I assume that I can simply replace these with 2" or even 2 1/4" if I need to. Has anyone ever done this?
For that application, screws are screws. Nothing special is needed. You can use whichever fit the hole.
