I'm hoping someone here can help me out / shed a little light on the subject.
I have a mid 90s custom 24 with the standard issue PRS "winged" tuners of the day. The top two tuners have a single screw holding them down and the back of the headstock (just trying to give a clear picture).
I noticed one night at a gig that one of the threaded screws that hold the wing down had vanished!
I searched high and low, tore my case apart - it was gone.
So I reached out to PRS and asked for help. They basically said my guitar was too old - they couldn't replace the part, they didn't know what size the screw was, wouldn't tell me what I could replace it with short of tracking down an old set, and basically offered me no help to fix the problem - some customer service!!
So what can I do?
I'd love to just replace the screw - the tuners still work great. I've never had a single issue with them.
Anybody know the thread size? I assume it's metric.
Is there an online resource for these winged tuners of old that I haven't found yet?
Thanks in advance for any help.
PS - I did track down a possible source ( John Mann of John Mann's Guitar Vault), but I've gotten nowhere after several email attempts.
