    Other than drilling, does anybody have any bright ideas as to removing a broken tuner "anchor" screw from a graphite headstock? The screw has snapped in two just below the surface so there's nothing to grab. I'd like to minimize damage to the surrounding composite if possible.

    Riis, do you have a Dremel? You can drill a small (#60 or so) hole into the center of the stub and then use a broken screw extractor.

    Good luck!
