I have used a site in USA called "Frets on the Net". I cannot find the online address just now. But the guy makes parts to order including for the various Rockin Magic and RM bridges. But of course it is not cheap.

They have some kind of oddball threads that I haven't been able to find in hardware stores, so if anyone has any info, I'd appreciate it. Can't find the trem alone on ebay and I don't want to spring for a whole 'nother guitar just for the screw.
I'm sure Yamaha use METRIC threads on their bolts, probably 3 millimeter thread on the fine tuners. :idea: Try your local hardware store. :idea:

As Davie mentioned, Dave at "Frets on the net" can get/make the screws needed. (He's based in the USA)

I have this same bridge on my SE312M it's a Rockin' Magic Pro II. It's the only one of the Rockin' Magic, Floyd Rose style, bridges that doesn't require the ball end of the strings to be removed upon installation. I'm actually looking for replacement saddles for one of these bridges, if anyone would happen to have any in their spare parts collection that they'd be willing to part with or a lead on where I can find some.

I want to replace my RM pro 2, with an original Floyd Rose, but I don't know if it's a swap out or not? does anyone know the answer to that. If yes, please let me know. Thanks.
