Tribute Intonation Screws

Postby wango55 » Tue Nov 20, 2018 10:21 am

Hi All -

I just bought a used Tribute SB2 (Indonesian Made - I think it's a 2013 based on serial number) that happens to be missing the intonation screw and spring for the low E. The saddle lock screw is there, and it works - so it's not an issue at the moment, but I would like to get a replacement. I researched and ordered 8-32 fillster head screws, but those appear to be the wrong thread for tributes - probably since they're supposed to be metric. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement intonation screw and spring for a tribute? Are they common screws that would be found in Home Depot?

Thanks for your help!

I'm guessing that it would be an M4 screw. Take one you have to the store to assure size.

Another way to go would be to order a set of new saddles from the Online Store. It's more than you need, but it would get you the parts you do need and leave you with spares.

Thanks Ken - I'll check Home Depot for some M4 screws and compare to the remaining screws. As far as springs go - can I just use Fender replacements?

I'm thinking that allen-style cap screws, sized appropriately, should work here. Doubt that Homeless Despot will have filister head screws in SAE, let alone metric.

I don't see why not. If they slip over the screws and are long enough, go for it!

I have the same problem, well at least with the screw. I bought a used Tribute L-2000 från -99, Made In Japan, and it is missing one of the intonation screws. The spring is there so I didn't notice it at first.
What kind of screw should I be looking for? Is it in inch or metric?
Thankful for an answer.

As I mention here, I believe it's an M4 fillister head screw.
