Has anyone else had an issue with the three boom screws holding the extrusion to the J-neck coming lose? I've been told that "everything" has been tried and I just need to check tightness periodically. I believe there must be a solution someone has come up with. Currently, my fasteners are stainless, phillips head screws.

Any thoughts?

No kidding? I haven't looked that close at the extrusion to see about access on the back side. Thanks!
