i've recently gotten a used Peavey Nitro that was built in the 80s and the middle single coil pickup is way too high, but the head of the screw is all worn out so when i stick a screw driver in there to try to lower it, the screw driver just turns and doesn't do anything to the screw. is there anything i can do to turn the screw and lower the pickup?

that's a tough one, the only thing i can think of is using glue on a matchstick or something, but you'd probably have to remove the screw and replace it that way.

did you try just using pliers?

You can't unscrew it?

You may be able to get it out with needle nose pliers.

Take the pick guard off, unscrew, replace.

If you have a spare allen wrench or something similar, try gluing that in there to remove the screw. Whenever I try a match stick it always breaks if the screw is in any way resisting.
