Fine tuner screws

Hello, I asked this in the introduction forum but thought Iíd ask this here, does anyone know off hand if the screws on a TP-6 fine tuner are the same as Floyd Rose screws? I can buy 6 if theirs for price of 1 Gibson, one of mine fell out on my GK-55
Was advised to ask Gibson but Iím waiting on an answer

Coming from two different manufacturers, I would not expect that they would be identical or even compatible screws.

I sent Gibson the question but no answer, maybe cause it was weekend, I just looked at pictures, they look same but not sure of diameter or thread, I agree with you though cause ebay sellers only call out 1 or the other, not both, on what their listing fits
Thanks for responding

How much are the Gibson screws? If it was me, I would take the extra cost knowing that my guitar was still original.

Gibson set of 6 are $18.45, Floyd rose set is $8 including shipping, guess I will just bite the bullet, thought they might be same, I wouldnít want them if them didnít match even if they fit.

They have always responded to my questions over the years, even if the answer was they didn't know. To be fair, Fender have done so as well
