Its probably just the hole in the body worn too big. Put a piece of matchstick or toothpick in the hole and screw them back in. It just replaces the missing wood without risking doing any damage.

Yeah thats what I had to do with my guitar, it worked very well. Only I glued the toothpicks in because they were a pain in the ass to keep still when putting the screws back in place.

like said, toothpick or matchstick, what ever will fit in the hole. feel free to add wood glue as well. screw in thru the stick.

x4 on the toothpick. I use that for my strap locks when the screws that come with them are too small. If you're looking for something permanent, throw some gorilla glue in the hole first.

Yea, the're so stripped that I was actually able to just pull the screws out. Should I just glue it or continue with the match-sticking?

Gorilla glue plus the toothpicks and you'll be good to go (let it dry obviously).

You can pull them out because the hole has worn too large - thats why you need the matchstick - to replace the missing wood. Glue it in as well if you want, but the matchstick will be strong enough by itself.

Matchstick worked like a charm. Didn't even need glue. Sorry to have doubted you match-stickers.

Thanks guys
