Cork grease

Put a little cork grease on the threads of the screw. It may save you a trip to the shop.

Something to try before taking it in.

Most neck screws tenons have screw threads only on one side. Make sure your neck screw goes through the non-threaded side first and then into the threaded side. You can tell which side is non-threaded because the screw will move through it freely without needing to be turned. Hope this helps!

What?
by: Azuka

I realize the last comment is a few years old, but I can NOT figure out what he is trying to say. Is the neck too loose? Is it too tight? I can't make heads or tails of it. Perhaps, if English is not his first, or even second language, he might know someone who does speak and/or write English and who could post something that others could understand.
