I need some suggestion of what to do here. I was just jamming standing up, and the screw just ripped out of the whole. The binding is ripped baaaddd. I tried to put it back in, screwed for 5 minutes [yeah, haha, so funny lol] and it still just came out. Bad thing is, it's on my epiphone. And my dads too lazy to buy me a Gibson for something THIS mediocre, soooo any quick fixes?

Whoa dude - your dad is too LAZY? You have a strange way of thinking... you should never expect your parents to pay for something YOU want. If you want it - work for it. It's called living and being independant, it also shows that you respect your parents rather than simply using them for money.

Anyway, that happened to me before, you've probably wiggled around with it too much, and it won't sort itself out now... best chance is to glue it... if you keep drilling into it you'll ruin the sound of the guitar (IMO).

If it's only an Epi, superglu will do just fine.
Just a thought, there used to be something called Plastic Padding. It used to set like rock over about 24 hours but I haven't seen it around for a while. Might be worth a look.

If the worst comes to the worst you may have to use a bigger screw.

@ Jazz - It was a joke. lol. When I say lazy is actually slang for when he goes "baaaahahahahahahaha!! Get real ***." and continues to laugh in my face lol. It was just 1:30 and I was too tired to explain the emotional content of the situation.

Wow. This day went exceedingly well. Went to band practice, got nothing done, screwed around by the river, jammed on the front porch, then some dude came up the street, said it sounded good and asked if there was anything wrong with my guitar that needed fixing! lol. We went up to his place and he did the glue thing but was going to do the actual extra screw but my dad was coming. All for free too. PLUS, he plays bass lmao. It couldn't have been any MORE perfect. Yay for mega decibel porch jams!

make a new hole... it may look dumb but its not a big deal. ive seen a lot of people do it with ibanez xiphos guitars because the straps were off balance(the neck sunk). rusty cooley also changed the placing of his strap pins. i think you can get the hole filled in, so yea

Ah, so you were the one on Youtube with the IbanezXiphos700 name lol. But, I don't really want to **** it up that bad. It looks horrible, plus it could seriously bolt the tone down a notch.
