Is there anyway to fix an EQ box on my Acoustic-Electric guitar? The EQ box has some screws to set it into the guitar's body but the wood that would hold the EQ has chipped/broken now so that only 1 screw loosely hold the EQ.

Any Ideas?

Upon looking at the EQ again to take out the pictures, it seems to me that the EQ box is smaller than the hole made instead of it just simply being missing wood. Is there anyway to remedy the solution or would I have to try to find a bigger EQ box that can confrom to this guitar?

Wait, so the thing isn't broken, the wood is.
What's the guitar in particular?
'cause unless it's something expensive I guess this is the right time to upgrade to a different guitar.

Its a Takemine Acoustic-Electric guitar (model name escapes me right now) and since Im away from my guitar currently ill try to explain the best I can.

Their are 4 screws on the EQ Box currently the only screw that can hold any wood is the Top-Left screw, the other 3 screws have no wood that they can connect to because it has chipped away.

You could fill the holes are re-drill them? I'm not sure what the best stuff to use is, but maybe ask in the 'guitar-building and customising' sub-forum? There must be a guitar-friendly, poly-filler type thing

you could remove the box, secure a piece of wood, that looks like a frame of that hole to the guitar, and affix the old box to that frame.
the new "frame sides" would need to be big enough to
accept the screws from the box without stressing the guitar's already cracked frame.


edit: the new frame can be secured from inside the guitar. and should be as wide as the whole side.

Are there any EQ's you guys would recommend for my model of guitar?
