I just ordered some Schaller 3 per side for my guitar. It all fits but when I screw in to the back of the neck, where the other tuner holes were. I can screw them in in most of the way but at one point it gets to where I can't tighten it anymore. Even though I can still see the threads on the screw.

I don't know if I am putting them in at the wrong angle, I keep trying and trying. I don't want to force it or strip the screw.

are the screws on your new machine heads the same size of the previous screws? i bet it's a little longer than the original.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I had the same problem when I switched out my strap lock, try rubbing the screws on a bar of soap to glide them in.

The screws aren't longer but they are a little thicker.

My old screws are stripped but I got them in -.-.

Ill have to find a replacement at home depot or lowes.
