i was installing my new bustbucker pro pickups i bought off ebay onto my epi les paul. and everything was great. i disconnected the old rhythm pickup and was trying to put in the old one. and i realized there the mounting screw didnt fit. i was using the one that was originally on my guitar bc the pick-ups didnt come with a mounting screw of there own. so now i cant use'm. unless there is anything else i can do. should i contact the ebay seller, he had a 7 day return policy. where could i find new mounting screws that fit it.
help

I'd say your best bet is to buy all new mounting hardware (pickup rings, screws, maybe the height springs as well) if you feel like you know what you're doing.
If not, either go for the return or take it to your nearest guitar shop.

Rock on

Everywhere, but your best bet is to take the pickup to a local guitar shop and buy screws with a thread that matches.

Every company likes to use a different screw for some reason. I bought a box with a bunch of different kinds and it still isnt enough. The epi ones are a larger diameter screw and its metric. And you gotta watch aftermarket pickup rings very few fit epis. Epis are metric and most parts are imperial. So the screw holes wont line up.
