I had just bought a 5 string Ibanez SR885 used from a fellow TB'er. When he sold it to me, he told me the only problems it had and was nice enough to send the replacement parts (the vari mid pot and the bass/treble pot) so that I could fix it. Well, I opened up the insides, and saw spaghetti. So, I replaced the pots last night, and when I was taking the battery off, the negative side on the battery clip came off. No problem, it's only a couple of bucks for a bunch of them. So, today I go to radio shack, and got the clips, and I also bought a 9 volt holder clip so this thing isn't wagging all over inside the cover. Ok, nothing bad so far, right? So I continue on,install the clip, I clean up a lot of the wiring by bundling, and then comes the time to install the holder clip. I new I was working with less than a quarter of an inch of wood to attach the clip to, so I tape off my drill bit, and drill perfectly with wood still underneath. Nice. I also get a screw that was too long, and I cut it to length (SO I THOUGHT!-I guess you can see where this is going). Then, I go to install the clip, and as soon as the screw is all the way in, I turn the bass over and notice I CAME THROUGH THE FRONT!! Now, it's not a huge hole, but it's DEFINITELY noticeable. I puttied the hole, and I'm waiting for it to dry. I'm going to get some touch up paint to touch up the spot that needs it, then I was thinking about CA'ing over top as a clear coat, then sanding flat, and then polish sanding. Main question-Do you think this would work?
