Does anyone have a line on neck plate screws that are 2" in total length? I have a couple of sets of 1-3/4" but wedge shimming a neck for a B16 adds 1/8-3/16" on two of the screw holes. I'm afraid it will either strip out the neck holes in time or be unstable when playing.

Lowes never lets me down when I look for hardware. They had perfect chrome Strat pickguard screws last time I needed some...
yea, if I don't find anything meant specifically for the task online I'll go the Home Depot, Lowes and the local industrial nut and bolt shops route

I find HD has a much better hardware selection than Lowe's (might be store specific so ymmv), but don't forget to check Lee Valley as well if you need more options. Probably a pretty standard 10 or 12 gague screw though...

@vadsy I've got 3 only, 2" oval head. I have lots of stainless 2" flat head, and I have a ton of stainless oval head 2-1/2"
And of course, all the 1-3/4 in the world.....

anything there get you excited?

BTW , I've always had better luck finding oval head screws at Lowes.

I have 8 of these in 1-3/4" nickel, if any two of what you have look similar and are 2 inch, its time for a horse trade of some sort

@vadsy Here's a team picture for you. The 3 at the front are the 2" long oval heads. Next up is the 2" long flat head. And that long guy at the back is a 2-1/2" oval head. I've got lots of everything except the 2" oval heads
