Anyway, it seems MccMaster-Carr has filled the bill for the next 100 guitars...

Ha ha - they do that pretty consistently. One of the reasons I get a lot of my hardware from them.

I prefer the zinc inserts with the broken thread. I think the bite a little deeper into relatively soft hardwoods like walnut and mahogany.


I want the bolts to be a softer material than the inserts. If, in the unlikely circumstance either needs to be replaced, I want it to be the bolt, which can simply be replaced, rather than the insert, the replacement of which would be quite the chore...


With the softer zinc inserts, if they won't unscrew you can drill them out. I have used the other type also, they work, I just prefer the deeper bite and the broken thread.
