I'd imagine he stripped the head. If the threads were stripped the screw would probably just fall out.

Try using a pair of pliers to get it loose.

Go get yourself a screwdriver with a tip specially made to remove stripped screws. They literally dig into the screw while turning.

Ive had this happen before however it was to a bridge saddle allan key screw on my floyd rose tremlo system...do you have a small saw or maybe even a knife that will cut through metal?...if you do just cut a slit in the head of the screw and then use a normal screwdriver to turn it.
