I can't get the strap pin off... it sounds lame...
but yeah, it doesn't have a nut to loosen so I could slide th pin out. Once i get beyond that i'm fine...
I just really don't want to drill another hole in the guitar, when its not necessary.
Any ideas how to get it off?

Also important, the screw that I believe is holding it on doesn't turn no matter what screwdriver I use... its a phillips screw, and im using phillips screwdrivers... and even tried some others. I'm so lost

Can you help?
