I have a Gibson Faded Flying V (Mahogany) and recently the guitar cable was yanked, pulling and stripping a screw from the pickguard. Is there a good way for me to fix this?
This is kind of a hack, but I have a Strat that was fixed this way more than 30 years ago...
Break a wooden toothpick off in the screw hole and reinsert the screw. Do not over-tighten the screw or you'll end up back where you were.
