    I have a MIM Jazz that I've been sprucing up a bit. I found out while changing the control plate that the holes for the screws were slightly different than the factory plate. When putting in the screws, they went in a little crooked. Is there a way I can refill these holes so that I can go back in straight? Thanks.
     
  2. Plug the screw holes with a small piece of wood, like a toothpick, or a matchstick, or even something you carve yourself. put a coat of good glue, like "Titebond" on it and make sure that it is flush with the surface. Let dry for a few hours and pre-drill the new screw holes.
