    Take your bridge to your local hardware store. I'm sure they'll be able to match the thread size, & pitch. Being a '65, it's gonna be SAE, so if you're in an all metric country, you might have some difficulty finding replacements.
    Hopefully, some of the more knowledegable people might be able to help you better...
    Good luck, hope you get it sorted.

    The little set screws are #6-32, 3/8" length. I measured them from my '64 SG Junior.

    I just got some of these for my '66 SG Melody Maker, which had the screws missing...

    The material isn't exactly the same as what was used back in the day (probably nickel-plated brass), but these stainless steel ones worked great for me.

    I believe the closest metric equivalent would be M3.5 x 0.6mm, but I'm not 100% sure that would be a perfect fit.

    Don't use metric screw. They won't be correct. M4 x .7 are close, but far away from #6-32. The major diameter is about .020", or .5mm different. The pitch, and thread angle is also different.
