I am considering buying a set of used Artist pickups. The gold pole screws are somewhat worn. Does anyone know where I can obtain 12 new gold pickups screws? Is there a standard thread size for the pole screws on these? Is there a specific metal or alloy from which the screws should be made?

Also the DC Resistance measures 9.38k ohms on both the bass and treble pickups. Is this normal, or should I expect the treble pickup to read higher?

Thanks...
