    Hi,

    I dance so much when i play bass on stage, and the screws of my schaller straplock has "carved" a little on my bass, and I have fear that some day the bass will fly away...
    I have try a longer screw, but nothing changes.

    Someone can help me?

    I suggest taking your bass to a local luthier or repair person.
    They should take care of your problem.

    The old 'toothpicks and wood glue' repair method works great. Do a search for it in the Setup forum. That is where I am moving this thread.
