OK, this might not be a 4005-specific problem but I figured I'd post it here anyway. (Where else, for that matter?) I've got a '79 4005 Jetglo and there are a couple of places on the bass where the holes that certain things screw into (namely the trussrod cover plate on the headstock and the straplock on the body) where the holes are stripped. (The screws are loose, they just keep turning instead of tightening like they're supposed to.) Is there any way to fix this easily?

Easy and cheap - wooden toothpick in the hole. For a more professional fix, maybe Dale or Paul will chip in with advise.

Yeah, that's what I did for the straplock. I was hoping there was something more permanent but not invasive that I could do.

Put a little white glue in the hole with the tooth pick and it will stay secure.

Thanks everybody. That's about what I figured I'd have to do, but I wanted to check with the experts first!
