Alright so I accidently overdrilled the holes for the bridge studs for the tune o matic im putting on my guitar and im not too sure what to do. my options are A) fill it in with dowel and try it again, or B) try and glue it in somehow, with wood filler or wood glue or a combination of both. What should I do?

I would choose option a and fill it with dowel and re drill.

I don't know. There's an awful lot of pressure on those studs.

The pressure is downwards, so it shouldn't be so bad.

I'd recommend you drill the hole wider, so you can get a bigger dowel in there, that way the stud isn't so close to the edge of the dowel.

I say drill a 6 inch by 6 inch square and fill it with a wood block. Then you won't have to worry about hitting the edge.
