    Hi Everyone. I replaced the screw for the strap button of my guitar which is installed on the neck. It is a mahogany neck. My dilemma is that the screw is approx 1mm longer and I am wondering if I should have drilled the hole deeper to accomadate it. I am concerned if it may have cracked the wood and if so would I see it or know right away that the wood had cracked? :rollno:
