I have had issues with any screws lately from Stew Mac. I have no idea what they are made out of but everyone of them has either stripped on the top or broken clean in half when attempting to tighten down even after providing a guide hole. Very frustrating. I go elsewhere for anything with a screw and have not had the same problem.
I'm generally happy with you, StewMac but buying anything with cheap, casted screws will eventually reflect poorly on you. I broke one off today applying very little torque with the screw going into a .1" hole. This was a grave disappointment considering this was the last operation on this instrument.
Believe me, I know how to turn a screw. Don't trust these screws. Get some quality machined brass screws for these and throw out the provided screws. I bought gold buttons, fyi.
I could have give them 5 stars if the screw wouldn't broke when I installed them on the guitar!!
I had to dig all around the screw and refill the hole... Not very funny, especially when you just finish your project!
I would pay one more dollar if they could give better screws with their strap buttons...
Recently I restored an old Epiphone Accu-Bass and replaced the strap buttons as a finishing touch. The old mounting screws had stripped out. The solution? A bamboo skewer cut to length and slathered with ordinary wood glue and inserted into the old pilot hole, followed by a new pilot hole, followed by installation of the new buttons. Result? Shiny new strap buttons with a nice, tight fit. I also used some of the Stew-Mac felt washers. They make a great addition in combo with the strap buttons. The new buttons are tight and grip my guitar-strap perfectly. I'll never worry about them coming loose and having my bass hit the floor. Thanks, Stew-Mac!!!
Hey, what can I say. They work. Been buying them for years from Stew Mac with never a problem.
Not much to say really. It's a strap button. Works as advertised.
I was upgrading hardware from an acoustic from silver to gold, and these look great.
These are nice buttons. The seams are cleaner than cheaper buttons, so you don't have that visible line running around the buttons.
Other than that, they work like strap buttons should, and look nice.
