    Hi everyone,

    I have a little issue with my hotwire big apple 5. The strap peg at the bottom of the bass is comming loose. The screw has stripped the hole so that just screwing it in tighter does not do anything. Any ideas?

    I could always get a little bigger screw or try to fill the hole in a little with wood glue but I don't know if that would work. Has anyone else tryed this?

    Thanks for the info

    All you need is tooth picks and super glue. Put a couple toothpicks in the hole untill it's the right size and screw your strap button back in. The superglue is sometimes optional. I have done this repair on $100 dollar basses and $5000 dollar basses and it works great. Make sure your screw isn't bent first. It will work fine.
