I'm looking to replace the current saddle height adjustment screws on my Elite with shorter screws. Any ideas on a Fender part number or an alternative provider would be greatly appreciated.

It is easier ( and faster ) to use a file to shorter them than waiting an answer and order new ones. :lol:

Do you need to do that ?
Is you neck is ok ? Did you check MIcro Tilt adjusting screw ? You may need to unscrew it ?

Original part numbers are in the service diagram (note that the Elite Tele has both 5/16" and 3/8" screws, both 4-40 thread): https://www.fmicassets.com/Damroot/Orig ... -26-15.pdf

But as st52 wrote, check the neck angle first.
And if you shorten the current screws, do it from the bottom side. :wink:

So as it turns out the American Elite no longer has the micro-tilt. I went to a local bolt supplier and they were able to provide 4-40 set screws at 1/4" and 5/16" lengths at $.30 each so I'm all set.
