I just got a set of strap locks for my Gibson LP. I took out the screw nearest the neck first, and I used that one to put the locking bit on. No problems there.

However, when I took out the other screw, I noticed it was a bloody huge screw and I had to use one of the screws I got with the strap locks. I screwed it in no problem, and I haven't had any problems so far (touch wood) but I was wondering if it matters that I replaced the huge Gibson screw with a smaller one (smaller in diameter and length)?

Thanks in advance
Does anyone remember laughter?

If you aren't sure of it's durability. You could always go in and put a little wood glue and some toothpicks in there and then screw the straplock back in.

Great advice, it's free, and it's safe. I wouldn't take chances with a Gibson LP
