EMERGENCY, I have a gig tomorrow

So a couple weeks ago, I lowered my neck pickup and the spring broke, so tonight, I felt i needed to fix it. When I was unscrewing the neck pickup mounting ring, I realized two of the screw wouldn't screw out (The tops of them were slightly damaged, being that this Gibson is from 91.) The only thing I was able to do was break the mounting ring, allowing me to get access to the pickup, as well as making it easier to take out the rusted screws. UNFORTUNATELY, the screws wont come out,
Does anyone know how I can get them out???
I tried pliers and a screwdriver, the pliers were probably too weak and the screwdriver isnt gonna work
Thanks in advance

So your neck pickup is just really low or what?

No clue man, best of luck though.

thanks anyway, damn this is frustrating

Well, the best thing to do would probably be to just use your bridge pickup at the gig, then take it to a guitar shop. But that may not work, depending on how loose the pickup is.

Put the pickup height adjustment screws back in and screw them back to desired height.

You never know, it might turn out looking a little cool.

yeah, once i get the screw out though i can fix the rest from there, it's just a matter of those screws being stuck inside :O
my friend said that if worst come to worst, i can use his guitar at the gig, which sounds just as good

There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

So you have a gibson Les Paul from 91 and you've basically cracked it open like a wallnut?

You butcher!

Anyway I can't help I know nothing about guitar setup that's why i don't mess with it.
